Full-Time Teaching assistant for

  • Mathematische Grundlagen II (June-July 2016) RWTH Aachen
  • Mathematische Grundlagen I (WS 2016-2017) RWTH Aachen

Part-Time Teaching assistant for

  • Computational Methods for Engineering Applications II (WS 2015-16) ETH Zürich

Research interests

  • I am currently working on the numerical analysis of solvation models in theoretical chemistry. More concretely, this involves the analysis of domain decomposition methods for integral equations.
  • During my MS thesis, I studied shock instability and the so-called Carbuncle phenomenon in supersonic and hypersonic flows. My thesis presented the results of numerical simulations to explore the effectiveness of the entropy measure valued solution framework, which was developed by U. Fjordholm and S. Mishra, in resolving this instability phenomenon. This thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Siddhartha Mishra at the Seminar for Applied Mathematics at ETH.
