Since November 2019, I am a PhD student in the research group of Prof. Hartmut Monien. In collaboration with Prof. Werner Krauth from the École normale supérieure in Paris, France, we are ultimately interested in developing a non-reversible Monte Carlo algorithm for molecular systems with long-range interactions (as, e.g., water). As of today, the thermodynamic equilibrium of such systems can only be efficiently simulated using molecular dynamics. We are on the way to change this by using an advanced non-reversible Monte Carlo algorithm. In order to reach this long-term goal, we also study the non-reversible Monte Carlo algorithm in simpler models to properly understand its dynamics and properties.


I also wrote my Master's thesis in the group of Prof. Hartmut Monien in collaboration with Prof. Werner Krauth. It treats our JeLLyFysh application in great detail. JeLLyFysh is a general-purpose application for the non-reversible event-chain Monte Carlo algorithm for molecular systems. You can find my Master's thesis here.

For my Bachelor's thesis in the group of Prof. Hartmut Monien, we studied the cluster expansion of the one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model. If you are interested in this, you can find it here (in german).
