Fields of expertise
I am a scientist and instructor at EPFL in the Department of Mathematics. Before coming to Lausanne, I have been in San Diego as a Visiting Assistant Professor from 2017-2021
I received my PhD at the University of Oslo, Norway, in 2017. Before, I double-majored in Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Bonn.
I was a scientific visitor at the University of Minnesota in 2015-2016, at Cambridge University in 2019, and at Brown University in 2020.
My expertise is the theory of numerical simulations, in particular electromagnetism and general relativity.
