I am a staff scientist at Bayerisches Geoinstitut, Universität Bayreuth, performing computational research on Earth materials using both thermodynamic and ab-initio electronic structure methods. If you are interested in a Ph.D. or postdoc position I can provide more details on my research.


Currently I receive funding for my research from the German Science Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG) through a grant in the Research Unit (Forschungsgruppe) FOR 2440 on
Matter Under Planetary Interior Conditions - High-Pressure, Planetary and Plasma Physic.

In addition, we have recently received a Titan XP graphic card from the nvidia GPU hardware grant that we use to test code performance on GPUs.
