Since August 2017, I am a PhD student of Prof. Dr. Kathrin Bringmann at the University of Cologne.
My main research interests are in number theory, particularly in modular forms and partitions. Further interests lie in more elementary topics like cyclotomic polynomials, numerical semigroups or discriminators of integer sequences.
Previously I obtained my M.Sc. degree from the University of Bonn and my B.Sc. degree from Jacobs University Bremen.
