Profile   

I studied Physics at the Free University Berlin and University Granada. I wrote the Diplomarbeit in the Dept. of Physical Chemistry of the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin and graduated from Free University Berlin in 1999.

Then, I prepared the doctoral thesis in the Dept. of Physical Chemistry of the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin and obtained my doctoral degree in Physics from Technical University Berlin (TU Berlin) in 2003. After two years as a postdoctoral researcher with an individual Marie Curie Fellowship of the EU in the University Complutense in Madrid, I worked as a postdoc in the Centre for Astrobiology (CSIC/INTA) in Madrid from 2005 to 2012. Between 2010 and 2012, I was furthermore Profesor Asociado (part-time) in the Dept. of Applied Mathematics at ETSAM, Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM). From August 2012 to August 2013, I was a Research Associate in the Dept. of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University.

In October 2013, I started as a Lecturer in Mathematics (Non-linearity and Complexity Research Group) at Aston University.

Currently, I am the Undergraduate Programme Director (Joint Honours) for:

- BSc Business & Maths
- BSc Mathematics with Economics
