About

I am a PhD student in mathematics at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg and part of the the working groups of my advisors Petra Schwer and Thomas Kahle. Formerly, I studied at WWU Münster and completed my Masters degree under the supervision of Linus Kramer.

Research

Geometric group theory in connection with topology is my main research interest. The subject of my current research are the combinatorics of non-affine Coxeter groups within the context of my PhD studies.

Previously, I wrote my Bachelor and Master thesis on the local structure of locally compact groups and on a geometric proof of the strong Hanna Neumann conjecture.The former deals mainly with local splitting properties of these groups.
