I obtained my bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Münster in 2018 with a thesis on the nonlinear dynamics of a relativistic particle in the Coulomb/Kepler potential supervised by Stefan Linz. Following this I started the Master in physics program at the University of Bonn with a focus on theoretical physics, mainly in the field of particle physics.

The fascinating field of theoretical neuroscience caught my attention because of an introductory seminar given by the neural network dynamics and computation group and I subsequently joined this group of Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer as a Master’s student. In my Master’s thesis I addressed the topic of multi-layered networks of drifting assemblies.

Since 2023 I am a PhD student working on representational drift and neuroevolution.
