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
