I am a postdoctoral researcher at Technical University of Munich in the group of Christian Kühn working on dynamical systems and adaptive networks.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Queensland in mathematical neuroscience and before that, my M.Sc. and B.Sc. from Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich in mathematical physics and physics, respectively.

Research Interests

In my research, I am studying epidemic dynamics on multiplex networks. More specifically, I am trying to understand the influence of transport on the epidemic spreading by coupling a transport process with epidemic dynamics in a multiplex network structure. As such, my interests are in adaptive networks, dynamical systems, and probability.

An error occurred

What's the matter?

An error occurred while executing this script. Something does not work properly.

How can I fix the issue?

Open the current log file in the var/logs directory and find the associated error message (usually the last one).

Tell me more, please

The script execution stopped, because something does not work properly. The actual error message is hidden by this notice for security reasons and can be found in the current log file (see above). If you do not understand the error message or do not know how to fix the problem, search the Contao FAQs or visit the Contao support page.
