I'm a Professor of Mathematics (Algebra) at the RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau, member of the Algebra, Geometry and Computer Algebra group. My main research area is representation theory. I like interactions with algebraic geometry, category theory, combinatorics, and computer algebra—more generally also with computer science and physics. Some specific topics I am interested in are:

  • Birational geometry and representation theory of symplectic singularities
  • Representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras
  • Anything Lie theoretic
  • Tensor categories and categorification
  • Algorithmic and constructive techniques

In the 2022/2023 winter term I'm away on sabbatical (Freistellung für besondere Forschungsvorhaben)
