START Prize 2013 for PDE Models for Nanotechnology (1.2 M€) by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). In 2013, 9 out of 96 proposals were funded in an international competition among all areas of science. More information about the FWF START Program can be found here.
Senior research associate at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge. I worked in Peter Markowich's applied-partial-differential-equations group.
Total funding so far: ≈ 2.1 M€.

Eight-week thematic program Computational Uncertainty Quantification: Mathematical Foundations, Methodology and Data with five workshops at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute in Vienna in spring 2020. Organized jointly with Fabio Nobile (EPFL), Robert Scheichl (University of Bath), Christoph Schwab (ETHZ), Sara van de Geer (ETHZ), and Karen Willcox (MIT and ICES at UT Austin). Workshops:
multilevel and multifidelity sampling methods in UQ for PDEs,
approximation of high-dimensional parametric PDEs in forward UQ,
PDE-constrained Bayesian inverse UQ: spatial statistical models and PDE discretizations,
statistical estimation and machine learning in UQ for PDEs,
UQ in kinetic and transport equations and in high-frequency wave propagation.
