## Welcome!

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz University of Hannover's physics department. In 2017, I have finished my PhD at the University of Regensburg's math department.

My areas of specialization are mathematical physics and calculus of variations. Furthermore, I am interested in foundational physics, in particular in:

- The Theory of Causal Fermion Systems (Wiki, Introductory Article, Recording of Spring School)

- Foundations of Quantum Theory

- Mathematical Physics

- Aspects of General Relativity

#### Upcoming events:

Other events which I have co-organized.
