I am a PhD student in the theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research since February 2012.

My field of research is in material science, I am in particular interested in charge transport in organic semiconductors at high charge carrier densities, a situation occurring in organic light emitting diodes and field effect transistors.

I studied Physics (Diplom Oct. 2011) and Mathematics (B.Sc. Nov. 2009) at RWTH Aachen University and QMUL London. My final year project in Physics was in the field of Density Functional Theory in the group of Prof. Bluegel (Peter Gruenberg Institut) at Forschungszentrum Juelich. Here I developed a scheme allowing fully-relativistic Green function calculations for potentials of arbitrary shape within the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker method.
