About me

In 2011, after my A level, I started my Computational engineering science studies at RWTH. In 2016 I became a student research assistant at CATS and afterwards I wrote my master thesis about “Combined IGA- and classical meshes for the finite element method” here. After my studies I was working in the private sector for about one and a half years before I decided to do a Ph.D. and came back to CATS. Here, I am part of a small team that develops our C++ finite element library CAMPIGA (Computational Analysis using MetaProgramming and IsoGeometric Analysis).


My research interests are:

  • Plasticity in solid mechanics
  • Mesh deformation methods
  • Isogeometric analysis
  • Computational contact

Currently I am working on the DFG supported project EL 741/8-1 about "Efficient modeling of chip formation in orthogonal cutting using isogeometric analysis and modern methods of material characterization".
