#### Welcome to my web space!

I am a mathematician employed at the University of Graz in Austria. To be more precise, I am employed at the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing as a Senior Scientist.

Currently, I am also still affiliated to my former department, the Department of Mathematics at the University of Klagenfurt.

Mathematically, I am primarily interested in the area of Discrete Mathematics in combination with Computer Science. In particular, questions I am (currently) particularly interested in concern the following topics:

*Analytic Combinatorics*,*Analysis of Algorithms*, and*Automata Theory*,*Bijective Combinatorics*and*Combinatorial Identities*,- and a little bit of
*Algebraic Coding Theory*and*Cryptography*.

Furthermore, I like working with computers a lot. From time to time, I contribute to the open source computer mathematics system SageMath. I am also one of the core developers and maintainers of the community edition of the mathematical animation engine Manim. Another fun project I am involved in as a web developer is math.ematical.fun.
