From 1997 to 2001 I was working on a project devoted
to the numerical solution of boundary value problems
for ordinary differential equations. This project was funded
by the
Austrian Science Fund
under grant no. P-12507 MAT. The project was continued from 2002 to 2003 under grant
no. P-15072 MAT.
Comprehensive documentation of the activities can be found
on our
project homepage.
From 2003 to 2004, I was working as a group leader in the Special Research Program (SFB)
AURORA
of the Austrian Science Fund, and
from 2004 to 2005 with the
SFB 382 at the Eberhard Karls University
in Tübingen.
Then, from 2005 to 2006, I was employed with the
Institute of Materials Chemistry at Vienna
University of Technology.
From 2007 to 2010, I was funded by the APART scholarship of the
Austrian Academy of Sciences.
From 2010 to 2011, I was employed with the
Austrian Science Fund's
project P21742-N16 at the University of Vienna.
From 2011 to 2014, I was assistant professor at Vienna University of Technology.
Since 2015, I am employed with my research project MA14-002 funded by the
Vienna Science and Technology Fund at the University of Vienna.
So far, my research yielded the following refereed papers,
other publications and talks :
