Teaching
At UQ I am/have been teaching courses on ODEs, PDEs, Dynamical Systems (Bifurcations & Chaos),
Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Biology and Scientific Computing.
Earlier I have been teaching variational calculus & PDEs (U. de San Luis), Mathematics for Biologists (U. of Vienna), Mathematics for Chemists (U. of Linz) as well
as calculus (New York U.).
Short CV
I studied Technical Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology. I also earned a Master's degree in Law and I finished the first ("nonclinical") part of Medical Studies at the University of Vienna. Under the direction of Christian Schmeiser and Peter Markowich I earned my PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Vienna in 2007. During this time I spent several months at the University of Buenos Aires and at the ENSParis rue d'Ulm.
Before coming to UQ, I held postdoc positions at the Wolfgang Pauli Insitute (Vienna), University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (RICAM). In 2013 I won an Erwin Schrödinger Fellowship of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). I was a postdoc researcher in the group of Alex Mogilner first at UC Davis, then at the Courant Institute of Math. Sciences (New York University).
Prizes
 13th Bellman Prize (2011) for the paper "Size distribution dependence of prion aggregates infectivity" (2009) award by the journal "Mathematical Biosciences".
