Mathematical Education

I studied Mathematics at the University of Kiel and got my diploma and doctoral degree there.

My diploma thesis in Numerical Analysis deals with integral equations for second order elliptic boundary value problems. My supervisors were Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Hackbusch and Prof. Dr. Stefan A. Sauter.

I made my doctoral thesis in Harmonic Analysis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Detlef Müller. The dissertation was about spectral multipliers for differential operators on exponential growth Lie groups.

During my dissertation I stayed 18 months at the University of Genoa, Italy, with the group of Prof. Giancarlo Mauceri.

After staying in northern Italy, I visited Prof. Peter Sjögren at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden, for three and a half months as a postdoc.

My current research interests are Discrepancy Theory, Randomized Algorithms, Multi- and Infinite-Dimensional Integration, and Complexity of High-Dimensional Problems.

Working in these areas, I spent research periods at the University of Warsaw (March 2005), the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig (April-September 2005), the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena (May-July 2007), Columbia University in the City of New York (September 2007 and from September 2009 until August 2010), and the University of New South Wales in Sydney (February-March 2009, February-March 2011, from February 2012 until March 2013, and February-March 2014).
