I am a 3rd year PhD student of Michael Drmota at TU Wien.
Before moving to Vienna for the doctorate, I studied discrete mathematics at TU Graz and spent an Erasmus year at Charles University in Prague during my master studies.

My current research is motivated by universality phenomena which appear in the study of discrete structures (eg. graphs or planar maps). My goal is to find and describe universal properties for the large scale behaviour thereof. I primarily employ techniques from analytic combinatorics but I also have a strong affinity for the probabilistic method.

Further I am student speaker at the Vienna School of Mathematics (VSM). If you have questions or suggestions, contact me!

If you are a student in one of the classes that I teach, please find further information in TISS or TUWEL.

I used to work as a graphic designer in nice places like Mürzzuschlag, Graz, Paris and Mauritius. So every once in a while I help out family (e.g. Logo+Website of Windheimat ) or friends and colleagues (e.g. Slides of ERC project POCOCOP).

I also have a degree in Stage and Costume Design, obtained at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Graz in 2015 and worked a bit in theatre but the only one that I dress up occasionally anymore is my dog.
