I'm a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. My research focuses on the investigation of simple randomized distributed algorithms designed for global coordination tasks. For this purpose I combine techniques from discrete probability, linear algebra and the theory of distributed algorithms. Among its many application domains, I have a strong interest in applying my research to understand the principles which underlie some behaviors of biological systems, including biological neural networks.
My current main hobby is (learning) bouldering.
