Welcome to my Homepage. I'm a Ph.D. Student at the Department of Mathematics at the University Duisburg-Essen in Essen. I started my Ph.D. in Fall 2007 under Prof. Böckle's supervision. I'm a member of the Arithmetic Geometry research group. Generally, I'm interested in the arithmetic of function fields, drinfeld modular forms and their applications. For more details, see my research page. I finished my diploma thesis in August 2007.
