I am a theoretical physicist and I am currently a Leopoldina postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Cologne. My main research interest is in the dynamics of quantum many-body systems far from equilibrium. On this website I give an overview of my scientific adventures.
