Hometown: Ulm, Germany
MS, Applied Mathematics
I did my undergraduate study in mathematics and almost completed a master’s degree in pure mathematics at the University of Ulm in Germany. Participating in the exchange program of Ulm University, I chose to attend SDSU because the study program Applied Mathematics provides the opportunity to enhance my mathematical expertise by gaining insights into advanced and specialized areas of mathematics.
My interests are mostly in the fields of numerical mathematics, so I focus a lot on programming which is absolutely crucial at the present time. Being fascinated in finding solutions for unsolved problems just by using tools I have learned during my study time, I appreciate to broaden my horizon with regard to solve even harder problems. Therefore, I consider my stay at San Diego State University to become a highly valuable experience which promises to significantly enrich and improve my knowledge in mathematics and to proceed my personal development.
I’m very grateful to receive a Fulbright Grant, the Presidential Graduate Fellowship and a scholarship from Talanx Foundation. With this help, I am getting closer to my subsequent goal of pursuing a PhD in Mathematics.
