Fields of expertise

>>> You find my personal website at <<<

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.

Teaching & PhD




Numerical approximation of PDEs

The course is about the derivation, theoretical analysis and implementation of the finite element method for the numerical approximation of partial differential equations in one and two space dimensions.
