About me /Research Interests

I am a postdoc in Stefan Schwede's Arbeitsgruppe in the Topology Group at the University of Bonn.
Curriculum vitae (pdf, updated February 2019)

My main mathematical interests lie in unstable and stable equivariant homotopy theory, their relationship, and the interplay with additional algebraic structure such as ring or module structures. Moreover, I am interested in the theory of finite groups and compact Lie groups, their representation theory, tensor-triangulated geometry, and equivariant structures in commutative algebra (e.g. Mackey and Tambara functors).


In the summer semester 2019, Stefan Schwede and I will jointly offer the following courses: the lecture course Algebraic Topology II and the graduate seminar Steenrod operations and homotopy groups of spheres.

In the winter semester 2018/19, I am the assistent for Algebraic Topology I and Linearität in Algebra und Analysis.
