The lack of research funding or a suitable job offer forced me to abandon my academic career. You are still very welcome to build on my research results.
Research interests:
The interfaces of mathematical (esp. probabilistic) modelling, stochastic processes, statistics, machine learning, chemical reaction kinetics, systems biology, control theory, operations research. I seek novel possibilities how these can be applied to develop quantitative methods for research in the life sciences. I'm also interested in making a positive societal impact with my research, and I'm open to being contacted with interesting project ideas for consultation (currently I work as a freelance applied mathematician).
Previous appointments:
 I was based at the Centre for Biological Systems Analysis (ZBSA) and tangentially at the Department of Mathematical Stochastics, both at the University of Freiburg, Germany. My host was Prof. Peter Pfaffelhuber.
 In Freiburg, I was most recently an AXA Research Fund postdoctoral fellow.
 I was visiting the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK, from January until June 2016. (Even in this period, the AXA Research Fund fellowship provided my income.)
 I came to Freiburg with a Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.
 Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara. I worked with Profs. Mustafa Khammash (Dept. of Mechanical Engineering) and João P. Hespanha (Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering).

In fact, the state space X_{M} is given by all possible partitions of the
integer M, a wellknown problem in combinatorics. In particular, one can show the recurrence formula and the asymptotic as M → ∞, Flajolet and Sedgewick (2009, Chap. I.3)^{1}…
