Teaching history

Ever since my second semester of studies at the University of Ulm I have been involved in teaching. During the first years, my teaching duties consisted mostly of explaining programming exercises and clearly defined parts of a lecture to younger students. Later starting with the time of my Ph.D. studies in Frankfurt my teaching responsibilities were enlarged. I was responsible for exercises which are offered as part of a lecture and organized seminars. After my Ph.D. I began to independently organize lectures and seminars and in particular during my time as an acting professor in Konstanz I had the chance of being responsible for courses on various levels.  In addition to teaching classes, I had the pleasure of supervising thesis of students on Bachelor and Master level. Aside from teaching in mathematics, I also took opportunities to engage in cross border teaching with the department of philosophy.

In the table below I collect a detailed overview of my teaching experience.

1Individual courses are courses where I was independetly responsible for all parts of the course. 2 I was responsable for the exsrcise part of a lecture which was given by another person. 3 In some cases the supervision was joint with other colleagues.
