I did my undergraduate and graduate studies at the Faculty of Mathematics, studying Numerical Mathematics and Optimization at that time. After my PhD studies at the University of Klagenfurt in Austria, I spent some years at the Technical University of Munich. Currently, I am working as an assistant professor at Radboud University in the Netherlands.

In my research work, I deal with nonlinear partial equations. I spend most of my time researching the wave equations that arise in nonlinear acoustics and describe the propagation of ultrasonic waves. Applied mathematics has always fascinated me because it uses seemingly very abstract concepts to improve understanding of concrete real world problems. The most valuable thing I took away from studying mathematics, besides knowledge, is the ability to think critically and solve problems (and not give up!).
