I have studied computer science at the Technical University of Dortmund (Dortmund, Germany) and I am about to finish a second studies in mathematics at the Technical University of Dortmund (Dortmund, Germany) and the FernUniveristät in Hagen (Hagen, Germany). I have obtained a PhD at the University of Lugano (Lugano, Switzerland) with a thesis about "Stochastic Combinatorial Optimization - From Theory to Practice". Currently I am PostDoc in the working group of Maria Grazia Speranza at the University of Brescia (Brescia, Italy). I am funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation through an Early PostDoc.Mobiliy fellowship and I am affiliated to the University of Lugano (Lugano, Switzerland) and the University of Brescia (Brescia, Italy).
My main research interests are stochastic combinatorial optimization, operations research, heuristics and theoretical computer science. Apart from that, I have many more interests, including among others philosophy, economy, sports and music (piano). I deeply enjoy discussions about topics ranging from social and economical problems to the current research system and how it can be improved. In the future I will present some of my interests and ideas more in detail on this website.
