Welcome to my web space! I am a mathematician employed as a PostDoc at Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt in Austria. To be more precise, I am employed at the Department of Mathematics within the FWF project Analytic Combinatorics: Digits, Automata and Trees.

Quite recently, I finished my PhD (supervised by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Clemens Heuberger), but for formal reasons I am not officially holding the title "Doctor" yet.

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

  • Analytic Combinatorics and Analysis of Algorithms,
  • Automata Theory, Cryptography, and Algebraic Coding Theory,
  • and a little bit of Statistics (Machine Learning and some Statistical Modeling)

Furthermore, I like working with computers a lot. From time to time, I contribute to the open source computer mathematics system SageMath. Two projects I am involved in as a web developer can be found at math.ematical.fun and food.felf.io.
