I’m a member of the Algebra, Geometry and Computer Algebra group at the University of Kaiserslautern. My main research focus lies in algebraic geometry, representation theory, and category theory—mostly in the context of algebraic Lie theory. I also develop computer algebraic methods. Specific topics I am interested in are:

  • Symplectic singularities
  • Geometric representation theory
  • Coxeter groups, Kazhdan–Lusztig theory, Hecke algebras, Soergel bimodules; complex reflection groups, cyclotomic Hecke algebras, spetses
  • Highest weight categories, cellular algebras
  • Tensor categories
  • Computer algebra
