I am a first-year PhD student in the
Logic group at WWU Münster, under the supervision of Franziska Jahnke and Martin Hils. My position is financed by the DFG via the project Modelltheorie bewerteter Körper mit Endomorphismus. I am also a member of the Cluster of Excellence ‘Mathematics Münster’ and one of the Speakers of the Graduate School.

I am interested in the interaction between
valuation theory, model theory and algebraic dynamics; I like to think about valued difference fields, their model theory, whether any AKE-type principles apply, especially when the morphism is not surjective (e.g. it lifts the Frobenius from an imperfect residue field). More broadly, I am interested in the model theory of fields and its applications to algebra and geometry.

Outside of mathematics, I am interested in speculative fiction (
is my goodreads account), tabletop games, (slam) poetry, contemporary art, design and typography.
