Research assistant and PhD student in the TRR146 Project C1 "Hybrid particle/field models of macromolecular systems with adaptive resolution" under supervision of Prof. Dr. Thorsten Raasch.

Goals of my PhD project are the combination of particle and field-based methods in the context of the numerical simulation of polymers and the improvement of so called self-consistent field theory methods.
