About me

Hi! I’m Tom, a Research Assistant and PhD student at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, supervised by Peter K. Friz. I am also a fellow of the Berlin Mathematical School.

My research focuses on Stochastic Analysis, in particular (singular) stochastic partial differential equations. At the moment, I am focussing on two projects:

  • I am about to finish a paper on precise Laplace asymptotics for the non-linear 2D Parabolic Anderson Model using Hairer’s regularity structures (joint with Peter K. Friz).
  • Together with Pavlos Tsatsoulis (MPI Leipzig), I aim to establish exponential loss of memory for the 3D stochastic Allen-Cahn equation in the small noise regime.

Before taking up doctoral studies

I earned a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Mathematics from Technische Universität Dresden in 2013. After that, I moved to Berlin to pursue a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mathematics at Technische Universität Berlin which I completed in 2017 at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My Master’s thesis on large deviations for the 3D stochastic Allen-Cahn equation was supervised by Nicolas Perkowski.

In between, I did a five-months internship in the Risk Department of Commerzbank AG in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and spent nine months as an exchange student at Imperial College London, United Kingdom.
