About me

I am currently a Fellow in the Department of Mathematics.

I studied Mathematics at the TU Munich and Economics at UCL here in London. After that I joined the LSE to do my PhD in Mathematics which I completed in February 2019.

My research interests lie in Game Theory and connecting it to concepts from Information Theory. In particular, in my PhD thesis I investigated how the concept of entropy helps constructing strategies in a certain game set-up.

I enjoy teaching and had the pleasure to be a class teacher of Game Theory, Optimisation Theory and Real Analysis in the past years. This year I am teaching Game Theory (MA300.2) in Lent term. Furthermore, together with Prof von Stengel, I coordinate the new dissertation course for Bachelor students (MA334).

I am also organising this year's Women in Mathematics seminar series.
