I am currently a postdoc at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. I recently
finished my PhD at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Ramon Grima and
Guido Sanguinetti. I received my diploma in theoretical physics from the University of Heidelberg
in 2013, where I wrote my thesis on Functional Renormalization Group methods in the group of
Christof Wetterich.
