Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences
Inselstraße 22, 04103 Leipzig, Germany
Welcome to my page. I am a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in the research group General Theory of Complex Systems. My advisor is Jürgen Jost.
I am interested in systems, their structure, and their invariants. I have to deal with dynamical systems, measure theory, and (metric) topology, although I do not understand any of these fields as well as I would like to. Lately, I took the habit of using the language of category theory.
I am an economist by training and retain a residual interest in game theory and learning in games.
