I was PhD student and postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Wolfhard Janke at the Theoretical Physics Institute of the University Leipzig. My main focus was on generic properties of polymer aggregation and particle condensation. This included finite-size scaling behavior and the effect of confinement or constraints. In addition, I played around with spin models and disorder.

Now, I am a postdoctoral researcher in Viola Priesemann's group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organszation in Göttingen. Here, I cam looking at criticality in neural systems focusing on dynamic properties.
