I completed my undergraduate studies in applied mathematics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Minor subjects included in this degree programme are mechanical engineering and computational sciences. Focus in the minor subjects was on Fluid Mechanics, High Performance Computing and Software Engineering. For my final thesis I developed characteristic boundary and interface conditions for numerical simulations of the Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations.
In May 2011 I joined the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics (AFM) group as a research student. Under supervision of Richard D. Sandberg my work is concerned with the universality arguments for turbulence across different flow topologies. My study is part of the project `Is fine-scale turbulence universal?' in which I cover the part of direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a variety of compressible, turbulent flows including their post-processing and analysis.
