    Welcome to TeX SX! Well, begin with not using the empty pagestyle. You can define your own headers and footers with a dedicated package, such as fancyhdr or titleps, which comes with titlesec.

    Questions seeking debugging help ("why isn't this code working?") must include the desired behavior, a specific problem or error and the shortest code necessary to reproduce it in the question itself. Questions without a clear problem statement are not useful to other readers. See minimal working example (MWE). Nov 27, 2017 at 0:46

Hello and welcome to stackexchange! Your preambel looks a bit chaotic and the provided MWE doesn't work. Furthermore, better use the scrlayer-scrpage-package instead of the sometimes problematic titlesec-package for customizing the header or footer.

You could create it like that:



\ihead{Your name}
\ohead{And the pagenumber \thepage}





The result looks like that:
