I am working in numerical relativity using the pseudo spectral codes SpECTRE and bamps. My research focus lies in formalisms for the construction of initial data for numerical relativity simulations. Furthermore I am interested in the simulation and investigation of general relativistic binary systems.

I am also working on simulations studying the critical collapse of a scalar field coupled to general relativity.

Here are links to my publications: from InSpire, and from the ADS database.


I studied physics at the university of Rostock from 2008 to 2013. After graduating I worked in the statistical physics group in Rostock working on ab initio simulations of hot dense plasmas. In 2015 I started my PhD in the numerical relativity group at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. In my dissertation I studied the numerical solution of elliptic partial differential equations with applications in general relativity. Since 2018 I am a postdoc at the AEI.
