Welcome to my webpage.

I am an applied mathematician working in signal and image processing, image reconstruction and data processing using variational methods. In particular, I work on free discontinuity problems for high-dimensional data und on variational methods for manifold valued data . I develop algorithms aiming at relevant practical applications.  I collaborate with practitioneers, and I do analysis  to develop theoretical foundations.

I studied Mathematics (with minor Computer Science) at TU München (Focus: Fourier- and Functional Analysis, Signal- and Image Processing), I did my PhD at  TU Graz at the Institute of Geometry with Johannes Wallner (Focus: Geometric Data Processing). Then I was a researcher at the Fast Algorithms for Biomedical Imaging Group at the Institute of Computational Biology at Helmholtz Center Munich (Focus: Variational Algorithms for Processing Biomedical Data). Presently, I am a W2 professor for Mathematics with focus on Image Processing at Hochschule Darmstadt, and a guest scientist at Helmholtz Center Munich.
