PhD Theoretical Physics

Nov 2016 - Feb 2021

Technical University Freiberg, Germany

In my PhD years, I worked on combining electrodynamics in media with quantum field theory to obtain a microscopic description of matter based on fundamental microscopic field theories. Eventually, I was able to provide a proof-of-concept for the "Functional Approach" for the free electron gas.

Besides writing thousands of lines scientific code to support my research, I also tought numerous courses (from simple quantum theory to advanced density functional theory) and was heavily involved in university administration and project planning.

M. Sc. Applied Natural Science

Oct 2014 - Oct 2016

Technical University Freiberg, Germany

While keeping theoretical solid-state physics as subject, I added high-performance computing and code parallelization to my focus areas. By then it was only reasonable to completely take over the institute's IT administration including our self-hosted HPC clusters.

As valedictorian, I was awarded the "Georgius-Agricola Medal" for outstanding performance 🎖️.

B. Sc. Applied Natural Science

Oct 2010 - Oct 2014

Technical University Freiberg, Germany

During my Bachelor studies, I already decided to strive for theoretical and computational solid-state physics as main subject while taking additional courses in other fields to gain a broad mathematical and scientific training.
On top, I gradually took over some of the institute's IT administration and started giving tutor lessons.
