About Me

I am MATHEON-Professor and head of the Mathematical Geometry Processing group at the Institute of Mathematics at FU Berlin. I am full professor of Mathematics with research interests in the areas mathematical geometry processing, discrete differential geometry and mathematical visualization.

As co-chair of the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) my current efforts in teaching and education focus on our more than 150 international master and PhD students. Within BMS I am putting a special emphasis on the continuous improvement of our teaching and mentoring quality. Also maintaining good contacts of our school with international partners is important for the success of our students.

My efforts as former director of the Institute of Mathematics and former member of the academic senate of FU Berlin target at improving the internal workflows of our institute and the university in order to provide a most fruitful ground for an excellent research and teaching environment.
