My aim is to identify and detect novel spatial structures in physics and mathematics. Therefore, I develop statistical and mathematical analysis tools to learn what geometry can tells us about the physical properties. Finally, I optimize the complex structures for innovative material design. Thus, my research combines surprising physical phenomena with rigorous mathematics and statistics. I work together with mathematicians and theoretical as well as experimental physicists.
