Noisy classical systems under time-delayed feedback control
We study classical noisy systems that involve time-delayed feedback forces. We describe the non-Markovian Dynamics via delayed Fokker-Planck Equations and Delayed Langevin Equations. Therefore, we use analytical and numerical methods (e. g., Brownian Dynamics simulations).

Microswimmer dynamics subjected to orienting external fields
Using a continuum-theoretical approach we investigate the emerging patterns in active fluids like microswimmer suspensions. The goal is to understand how dynamical states such as mesoscale turbulence can be influenced using orienting external fields.

Nanoconfined colloidal systems under shear
Using Brownian dynamics simulations we investigate the non-equilibrium behavior of colloidal suspensions in strong spatial confinement. Some key aspects are the impact of shear forces, local transport via defect structures and the development of suitable feedback control strategies.

Non-equilibrium surface growth
We investigate growth and pattern formation in isotropic and anisotropic systems far from thermal equilibrium using Monte Carlo simulations and analytical methods. The goal is to develop a basic understanding of the conditions for controlled growth depending on system parameters.
