Since May 2018, I have been a postdoctoral researcher in the Coding for Communications and Data Storage (COD) group at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), where I am working on algebraic coding theory and its applications in network coding and cryptography.
From January 2014 to April 2018, I was a research assistant at the Institute of Communications Engineering, Ulm University. In June 2018, I defended my PhD thesis with the title "Construction and Decoding of Evaluation Codes in Hamming and Rank Metric", which was advised by Prof. Martin Bossert.
For my dissertation, I received the Südwestmetall-Förderpreis (Südwestmetall Advancement Award) 2019 (press release Ulm University, in German | LNT news page, in English) as well as the Ulmer Universitätsgesellschafts-Promotionspreis (dissertation award by the University Society of Ulm) 2019 (press release Ulm University, in German)
I obtained a B.Sc. in electrical engineering from Ulm University (2009-2012), was an exchange student at the University of Toronto, Canada, for two semesters (2012-2013), and received a B.Sc. in mathematics from Ulm University (2013-2016).
I am interested in algebraic coding theory, its related mathematical methods, and its applications.
