Research interests

My research interests are in the field of partial differential equations, of the calculus of variations, of the geometric analysis with relations to the differential geometry and the mathematical physics.
My main topics are:

  • elliptic problems of the upper order;
  • Willmore surfaces;
  • Hartree-Fock theory.

Editorial work

I am Editor of the Journal Analysis, International Mathematical Journal of Analysis and its Applications, De Gruyter. Interesting contributions are welcome! Submission can be done using the editorial manager (hier) or directly sending me an e-mail.

Available only in German.


Students who are interested in writing a bachelor, master or scientific thesis are welcome to contact me. Amongst others, I place topics in the theory of partial differential equations, in the differential geometry and the calculus of variations. I am also amenable to other topics in the field of analysis.
