Research interests:

  • Analysis of PDEs

  • Many-particle systems

  • Fluid-structure interactions

  • Homogenization


I am a Leopoldina Postdoc Fellow at the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu - Paris Rive Gauche (IMJ-PRG) at the Université de Paris. I obtained my PhD in 2019 with Juan Velázquez at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn. In 2020 I have been a postdoctoral researcher at the Université de Bordeaux.

I am interested in the emergence of collective phenomena from interaction on small scales. My research focuses on systems of many small particles suspended in fluids and combines methods from fluid-structure interactions, homogenization and kinetic theory.
