About

I'm an assistant professor for Mathematical Statistics and Data Science at Friedrich-Alexander University. Prior to that I was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Cornell University, working with David Matteson and Gennady Samorodnitsky.

I received my PhD in Mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics at Ruhr-University Bochum working in Herold Dehlings group and spent my PhD part-time in the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the supervision of Vladas Pipiras.

My current research interests include high-dimensional time series analysis, latent Gaussian count data, spectral density matrix estimation, dimension reduction, change-point analysis, functional data analysis, (multivariate) long-range dependence, nonstationary data and extreme value theory, applications in econometrics, neuroscience, chemistry and ecology.
