Research Interests

My research interests are focused on:

  • Monotonicity of dynamical systems
  • Especially monotonicity of Chemical Reaction Networks
  • Explicit optimal control under Uncertainties (Al'brekht`s Method)
  • Explicit parametric optimal output feedback

CV

In 2013 and 2015 I received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mathematics from the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. Since 2016 I am working as a research assistant in Rolf Findeisen's Group for Systems Theory and Automatic Control at the Institute for Automation Engineering, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. I have joined the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering Magdeburg in May 2016.
