Welcome to my webpage! I am a mathematician specialising in analysis - still formally based in Bonn (working in the analysis group at the University of Bonn under the mentorship of Prof. Dr. H. Koch), I will take up a W1-professorship (TT to W3) at the University of Konstanz as of April 1, 2021. Before I moved to Bonn, I completed my PhD at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Dr. J. Kristensen. A short CV is available here.
Broadly speaking, my research is centered around regularity theory in the calculus of variations, real analysis, function spaces and their interactions in applications. Here, a particular focus is on the borderline case of linear growth functionals, where things substantially differ from other frameworks - might it be because of compactness or failure of standard techniques from harmonic analysis.
Summer Term 2021: Lecture & Seminar
In summer 2021, I will offer an MSc lecture on "Functions of bounded variation and their appli-cations" as well as a BSc/MSc seminar on "Convex Analysis". A more detailled description of these courses can be found here (lecture) and here (seminar). Feel free to contact me in case of any questions!
Summer Term 2021: Thesis Supervisions
I am always willing to supervise graduation theses in Analysis & PDE (both BSc, MSc). In case you are interested, you can get some inspiration by previous theses here - feel free to contact me!
Summer Term 2020: Graduate Lecture 'Selected Topics in Analysis & PDE' on Function Spaces and Potential Theory
In summer 2020 I offer a graduate lecture (MSc level) on function spaces and (non-)linear potential theory. A more detailled description of the lecture (including time & venue) is available here.
Summer Term 2020: Function Spaces & Potential Theory informal closing meeting
Either on Jul 16 or Jul 21, we will have an infor-mal closing meeting for my selected topics lec-ture in a beergarden (participants will be invited),
and more information will be available here soon.
Winter Term 2020/21: Thesis Supervisions
Since I am leaving Bonn to March 1, 2021, I will not be able to supervise any new Bachelor's or Master's theses. If you are intrested in writing a thesis in Analysis & PDE, you may contact our group members, first and foremost Prof. H. Koch.
Cabin Seminar Summer Term 2020:
In summer 2020, H. Koch and I will offer a block seminar for our Bachelor and Master students. By the recent outbreak of the corona virus, we were bound to cancel the original appointment in May 2020; we will make good for the seminar at some later point - in the meantime, stay healthy!
Update (Jun 15): It is still not conceivable when the Corona restrictions are softened enough to go for a cabin seminar in summer. In any case, we shall have a hike - more information will be dis-tributed here once available.
Thesis Supervisions Winter Term 2020/21
By recent requests for thesis supervisions, I have already assigned all three slots for winter term 2020/21. To provide my students with a satisfac-tory supervision, I will not be able to supervise any further theses. Please browse our group webpage to find a supervisor - here your first contact is Prof. H. Koch.
Workshop: In September 2019, L. Beck (Augsburg), J. Kristensen (Oxford) and myself organised a workshop on linear growth functionals - more information is available here. - Many thanks to all the participants for this wonderful event!
