Biographical details
I completed my PhD in 2014 at the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany under the supervision of Gunter Malle with a topic on rational Cherednik algebras, a mixture of representation theory, algebraic geometry, and computer algebra. Since 2013 already I was a research assistant of Meinolf Geck at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. In 2017 I moved to the University of Sydney as a "Research Fellow in Algebraic Lie Theorie and Algebraic Geometry".
Research interests
I'm really interested in algebraic aspects of any kind, but mainly in representation theory, algebraic geometry, and computer algebra. In a rough sense I'm interested in everything which is even broadly connected to (complex) reflection groups, with one driving force being the spetses program by Broué–Malle–Michel. Most of my work so far is centered around rational Cherednik algebras. Starting from here I also studied more general representationtheoretic questions. I've developed a larger computer package called CHAMP to perform explicit computations in these algebras and their representations.
Teaching and supervision
In 2016 I've given a rather extensive course on commutative algebra at the University of Stuttgart (40 hours of lectures plus 20 hours of exercise classes). In 2013 and 2014 I've given courses on computer algebra (with a more applied character using the computer algebra system Magma).
