2013 - present Phd in Computer Science, University of Jena, founded by Carl-Zeiss-Foundation.

2011- 2013  MSc in Computational Science, University of Jena, Master thesis: 'Rule-Based Simulation of the Inner Kinetochore Structure and Analysis of its Behavior using In-Silico Mutation Experiments.'

2008- 2011 BSc in Mathematics, University of Jena, Bachelor thesis: 'Efficient programming of the heat equation on a GPU using CUDA.'

Research Interests

  • Rule based modeling of the kinetochore and PML nuclear bodies.
  • Modeling of the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) and reveal its secrets.
  • Developing of new 3-dimensional-coarse-grained algorithms which use a rule based approach.
  • Solving of partial differential equation system.

About Me

I am one of the first students of the new Master of Computational Science program at the University of Jena and graduated also in Jena as Bachelor of Science in mathematics. In my spare time i like to play volleyball, go inline skating or play Pokemon GO. I am generally into sports and all kind of video or board games.
