I’m a Professor of Mathematics (Algebra) at the University of Kaiserslautern, part of the the Algebra, Geometry and Computer Algebra group. My main research area is representation theory and I especially like connections to algebraic geometry, category theory, combinatorics, and computer algebra. Some specific topics I am interested in are:

- Symplectic singularities
- Highest weight categories, cellular algebras, and homological features in general
- Reflection groups, Hecke algebras, Kazhdan–Lusztig theory et. al.
- Wreath combinatorics
- Categorification, tensor categories
- Algorithmic and constructive techniques
