Oct. 2013 – Sept. 2019 Bachelor and Master studies of Business Mathematics, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany
Sept. 2019 Master degree
Master thesis: Entropy-stable space-time DG method for the compressible Euler equations in 2D
Advisor: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gregor Gassner
Since Oct. 2019 PhD studies, Institute of Mathematics, University of Wuerzburg, Germany
​​​​​​​Advisor: Prof. Dr. Christian Klingenberg

In my research I work on finite volume methods for the compressible Euler as well as magnetohydrodynamics equations including gravitational source terms. The focus is on the development of methods that are able to maintain hydrostatic equilibria and at the same time provide accurate numerical solutions for problems with low Mach numbers. These methods find practical application, for example, in astrophysics for the simulation of gas flows in the interior of stars.
