Workshop on Dormancy

Workshop on Evolutionary consquences of Dormancy, 16.-18. September 2019 in Berlin, funded by SPP1590. Details see here.


I am a junior professor at the institute of mathematics of the Technical University of Berlin, member of the Berlin Mathematical School and of MATH+. I am involved in a project of the DFG priority program 1590 "Probabilistic structures in evolution".
My research interests lie in the field of probability theory and stochastic processes with applications to biology and physics. Research topics include long-range population models, bacterial evolution, duality theory of Markov processes, interacting particle systems, random interface models.
From July 2016 to September 2017 I was on parental leave.
