I am a PhD student working in the field of geometric analysis, advised by Prof. Dr. Elena Mäder-Baumdicker. My research interests are geometric variational problems, such as minimal surfaces and Willmore surfaces.

I am an associated member of the SPP 2026 „Geometry at Infinity“ .

From September to December 2022, I was guest at the IMAG (University of Granada, Spain), funded by the DAAD.
