Short CV

I am one of the principal investigators in the Research Training Group (RTG) 2131 High-Dimensional Phenomena in Probability-Fluctuations and Discontinuity.

I am a member of the DFG scientific network Cumulants, concentration and superconcentration

Editorial activities

I am member of the editorial board of the following journals

Polyhedron models

I have recently started to build models of polyhedra in 3 and projections of polyhedra in 4 dimensional space. I am still trying to complete this list, but you might check the current status from time to time.
