Research Interest:  
The focus of my scientific work is on problems concerning dynamics (differential equations, dynamical systems, stochastic many particle systems) in modelling, analysis, numerics, simulation and optimization of complex scientific, medical and engineering systems. Besides mathematical theory, realworld applications of nonlinear mathematics are an important part of my work. My research contains in particular the interplay between discrete and continuous as well as deterministic and stochastic models and corresponding methods.
