About Me

I am currently a research assistant ("Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter") at the Institute of Modelling, Analysis and Dynamics of the University of Stuttgart, having being a postdoc in Ulm with a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Before that I was at the Group of Mathematical Physics of the University of Lisbon and the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Sydney. I am returning to Ulm for the summer semester 2016 to fill in for Prof. Anna dall'Acqua at the Institute of Analysis.

Research Interests

  • Elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations
  • Functional analysis and operator theory
  • Spectral theory
  • Boundary value problems for second order elliptic PDEs
  • Shape optimisation and isoperimetric problems
