Yr Ysgol Mathemateg


I am a german mathematician specialized in Analysis and Geometry. After completion of my undergraduate and doctoral education in Heidelberg, Germany, I have worked as a postdoc at various places in Germany and the United States.

I am new to Cardiff and very excited about getting to know Welsh culture.

Academic Year 2020/21

Autumn Semester

MA3017: Measure Theory

For details on my teaching before I came to Cardiff please see my personal webpage.

Research interests

I am interested in the theory and applications of geometric evolution equations, such as the mean curvature flow, the inverse mean curvature flow and other fully nonlinear variants. A main motivation lies in their applicability to questions arising from convex geometry, such as generalized isoperimetric inequalities or existence of prescribed curvature measures and also in questions arsing from general relativity, such as Penrose-type inequalities.

All my papers (journal publications and preprints) are available at arXiv.org.

Here are reviews of my papers at mathscinet.ams.org.


My research has partially been funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) within two projects on curvature flows:

  • "Harnack inequalities for curvature flows and applications", 2016-2019, gepris:319506420
  • "Quermassintegral preserving local curvature flows", 2019-2020, gepris:400729345


Over the past years I have presented my work at various places, including Harvard, Rutgers, Columbia (USA), McGill (Canada), Warwick (UK), Macquarie University Sydney (Australia) and Xiamen (China).

For a full list of talks and attended conferences see my personal webpage.


Open PhD position

EPRSC doctoral studentship, application deadline March 1st, 2021.

In general I am interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of:

  • Partial differential equations, with possible applications in
    • Geometric evolution equations (mean curvature flow, Ricci flow and their friends)
    • Hypersurface geometry (Stability of soap bubbles, theory of convex bodies, isoperimetric inequalities)
  • Lorentz geometry and general relativity

Past projects

  • Project leader of the project "Harnack inequalities for curvature flows and applications", funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), 2016-2019, gepris:319506420
