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".
