Matthias obtained his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from TU Dortmund and went on to pursue postgraduate studies at Cambridge and Münster, where he graduated with a Master Thesis on Convergence results for the Ricci Flow, supervised by Prof. Burkhard Wilking.
Since then he is a DPhil student at the University of Oxford under supervision by Prof. Andrew Dancer.
