Academic and Nonacademic Service

Together with Dima Dudko, we organised a course followed by participation in IMC (international math competition), and this year our team got no. 6 worldwise!

I’m one of the people taking care of a chinese culture association here in Gottingen with its Chinese version.

I’m also Gleichstellungsbeauftragte for math institute :).

I organised Girls Day 2016 here in Gottingen for higher school girls.
