Short Bio

I am a postdoctoral associate in the group of Felix Brandt since October 2018. I received my PhD in mathematics from the Technical University of Munich in 2018. Before that, I studied mathematics at the Technical University of Munich. My research interests broadly cover social choice theory, decision theory, and game theory with a particular interest in non-standard models of decision-making under uncertainty.
