About me

I have been working as a research assistant here at CATS since October 2017. I previously studied Computational Engineering Science at the RWTH Aachen University.


  • 2017: M.Sc. Computational Engineering Science, RWTH Aachen University, Thesis: Extension of a Software Environment for the Simulation of Fluid-Structure Interactions with Contact
  • 2015: B.Sc. Computational Engineering Science, RWTH Aachen University, Thesis: Isogeometric Analysis applied to nonlinear Elastodynamics for Fluid-Structure Interaction



My research interests are:

  • simulation of calibration processes in the field of platics profile extrusion
