I am a PhD student in Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Ansgar Jüngel. I work in the Research Group for Analysis of Nonlinear PDEs. My research interests lie in the analysis of cross-diffusion systems to describe biological processes. In particular, I am familiar with entropy methods.
