I am a Research Assistant (of Prof. Wolfgang Soergel) at the University of Freiburg.
In the academic year 2020/21 I was a Junior Fellow at FRIAS

(Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies).

I'm also member of the GK1821: Cohomological Methods in Geometry.
Before coming to Freiburg, I was a PostDoc at MSRI, Berkeley, during the semester Group Representation Theory and Applications.

I completed my PhD in January 2018 at the Max Planck Institute, Bonn, under the supervision of Geordie Williamson.

My CV.

Research Interests

My research area is called Geometric Representation Theory.
I enjoy thinking primarily about aspects of representation theory that can be "seen" geometrically.
I am particularly interested in the following topic:

  • Hecke algebras and their categorification via Soergel bimodules
  • Kazhdan-Lusztig Combinatorics
  • Perverse sheaves
  • Hodge Theory
  • Flag manifolds and the geometry of Schubert varieties
  • Koszul Duality
  • Affine Grassmannians and Geometric Satake Correspondence
  • Quantum groups and KLR algebras
  • Nilpotent Orbits and Springer Correspondence
  • Representations of Algebraic Groups
