Since September 2013 I am a student in the research training group Methods for Discrete Structures, and the Berlin Mathematical School. Whithin these programs I do my PhD in mathematics with Günter M. Ziegler at Freie Universität Berlin. In my PhD project I work on a better understanding of the sets of flag vectors of polytopes, spheres and Eulerian lattices, where I am particuliarly interested in the questions in to which extend these sets coincide and where the differences are.

Before I started my PhD I studied mathematics at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (B.Sc.), University of Swansea (ERASMUS Semester), and Freie Universität Berlin (M.Sc.).

Besides math, I'm interested in Ultimate Frisbee, kajaking and music (Marimbaphone, timps, percussion). I'm married with Geeske Brinkmann.
