Welcome to my homepage! I am a theoretical physicist with a PhD degree from Germany.
My research deals with the physics of the world around us. In particular, I am interested in threatening phenomena, which are a big part of our daily life, such as extreme air temperature, contaminants in hydrogeological soil, and floods. I develop mathematical tools that help scientists and practitioners to avert potential damage of such phenomena.
In my current DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) funded research project at the Bar-Ilan University (Ramat Gan, Israel), I study the physics of extreme events in natural systems. During my PhD at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (Dresden, Germany), I specialized in the statistical analysis of data sets with long-range correlations.
