About Me

I am a trainee for the higher technical service at the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) specialized in naval architecture and marine engines. Before that I was a research assistant at the University of Rostock, working in the field of numerical modeling and simulation of particle-laden turbulent flows.
