I have a B.Sc. degree in Simulation Technology from the University of Stuttgart where I finished with a thesis focusing on a model of muscle hypertrophy based on fatigue and mechanical overload. For my Master´s, I went to the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg to study Environmental Modelling. There, I spent the last two years working at the BioND Lab at the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB), led by Thilo Gross, with research projects surrounding diffusion maps and a master´s thesis that was concerned with spreading processes on multilayer networks, as well as their steady state solutions using Kirchhoff´s theorem and generating functions.
I am fundamentally drawn to and interested in the underlying theory of network science and adjacent disciplines. Currently, this includes the study of higher-order interactions, patterns of cooperation and the analysis of emergent phenomena of local interactions that utilize examples of game theory. Beyond that, I am fascinated by the current advances in bridging the gap between network science and graph theory.
