I am a mathematician working in geometry, topology and analysis. My specific research interests include Riemannian metrics with lower scalar curvature bounds, spin geometry and Dirac operators, index theory, K-theory of operator algebras, and coarse geometry.

I hold the position of a postdoctoral research and teaching associate (formal title: akademischer Rat auf Zeit) at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Münster, where I am an investigator in the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster. I am also a project leader in a subproject of the DFG priority programme Geometry at Infinity.

During the summer term 2020 I was on leave from Münster in order to serve as a Vertretungsprofessor at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Göttingen.
