Since November 2017 I am a postdoc in the group of Robert Seiringer at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria.

My field of research is mathematical physics. In particular, I am working on the derivation of effective evolution equations from many-body quantum mechanics.
While my main focus is on quantum systems of bosons and fermions which couple to quantized radiation fields, I also study the evolution of Bose-Einstein condensates in the Gross-Pitaevskii regime.

Moreover, I am interested in the theoretical description of arrival time measurements in quantum mechanics.
