about me

I am a PhD student at the Institute for theoretical physics, TU Berlin, in the group of Sabine Klapp. I am interested in analytical descriptions of non-Markovian systems, in particular, how the concepts of statistical mechanics can be generalized towards non-equilibrium systems with memory. I am especially interested in possibilities to describe stochastic systems with discrete or distributed time delay by means of stochastic thermodynamics. A suitable model is a Brownian particles subject to continuous feedback control. Some keywords:

  • Stochastic delay differential equations

  • Fokker-Planck equation for systems with memory

  • Stochastic thermodynamics

  • Nonlinear dynamics

If I don't do physics, I also like climbing, trekking, traveling, cooking, arts, literature.
