I am a Masters student in the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I studied at the University of Stuttgart in Germany from 2005 till 2008 before I came to this university through an ISAP program sponsored by the DAAD.

Since August 2008 I work as a Research Assistant for Prof. Dan Negrut at the Simulation Based Engineering Laboratory. My interests are in the field of multibody dynamics, specifically granular simulations using DEM and DVI approaches as well as co-simulations.

I also have a position as a Teaching Assistant for the course ME 240 Dynamics since August 2009.
