Welcome to my web space! I am a mathematician employed as a project assistant in the FWF project “Asymptotic Analysis of Extremal Discrete Structures” at the Department of Mathematics at Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (Faculty of Technical Sciences) in Austria, where I am also working on my PhD thesis (supervised by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Clemens Heuberger).

I am primarily interested in the area of discrete mathematics in combination with computer science; this combination includes, amongst others, the following topics:

  • analysis of algorithms and analytic combinatorics,
  • theoretical computer science, especially automata theory, cryptography, and complexity theory,
  • algebraic coding theory,
  • statistics, especially Bayesian inference, computational statistics, and statistical modeling.

Furthermore, I like working with computers, in particular computer algebra systems like SageMath, where I am also an active contributor.
