I studied Mathematics at the TU Berlin until 2017. During my Master's thesis, I was a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the US and made an internship at Maplesoft in Canada. I had the feeling the topic of my Master's thesis is worth it to put more effort into it. So I started my Ph.D. for further improving mathematical information retrieval algorithms. One of my big hobbies is Photography.


Caused by my backgrounds, I'm interested in the following research areas:

  • Presentation to Computation Translations
  • Mathematical Information Retrieval
  • Information Visualization


Don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to make a project in the listed areas.


The slides below are the examples of the projects on my research fields. To have an overview of the description in the high resolution, please open this pdf file.
