Hi there! I am Jessica - a short but very happy person who is enjoying mathematics and hiking! I was born and raised in Germany, where I studied mathematics with a focus on numerical analysis. I received my PhD from the Otto von Guericke University / Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg, Germany. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, I am currently working at the Department of Computer Science at UBC in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, together with Chen Greif. I am also a member of the Institute of Applied Mathematics. As a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow, I am currently teaching CPSC 303: Numerical Approximation and Discretization. I recently joined the Teaching and Learning Fellows Development Series at UBC, where we discuss evidence informed teaching practice, how students learn and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

A passion of mine is volunteering and managing events: Currently, I am co-organizing a career-planning workshop series at UBC called Science Leadership and Management (SLAM) together with Luz Angélica Caudillo Mata and Laura Morillas. As the Vice President Social of the UBC Postdoctoral Association, I am responsible for planning, executing, and advertising social events for postdoctoral fellows. I am a member of the Vivien Srivastava Fund's Oversight Committee, which helps increasing the participation of women in science through alleviating financial hardships and supporting career-planning events for graduate and postdoctoral researchers in UBC Science. I am a volunteer for the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology where I help planning events and participate in the Vancouver immigrant women community.

My research areas are numerical linear algebra, numerical analysis, and the numerical solution of phase field models. In particular, I am interested in iterative solvers for linear systems, saddle point problems, and preconditioning techniques.
