Research interests:

    • Representation theory of Lie algebras

    • Connections to Topology (in particular knot invariants, manifold invariants)

    • Categorification and TQFT

    • Combinatorial aspects of representation theory (Schubert calculus, Kazdhan-Lusztig theory, canonical bases etc.)

    • Hecke algebras and their representation theory

    • Diagram algebras categorification and higher category theory

Our working group:
Algebra and Representation Theory in Bonn

  • Research:

  • Publications/Preprints (see also the arxiv)

    Teaching (SoSe 2016)

  • Lecture course Advanced Algebra I – Introduction to algebraic categorification (V4A5)

    Tuesdays 16-18, Fridays 10-12, Wegelerstr. 10, Zeichensaal.

    The course gives an introduction into a few concepts in the theory of categorifications. We focus on algebraic methods and examples. The requirements is knowledge about the representation theory of classical semisimple Lie algebras over the complex numbers and good basic knowledge in algebra. Some experience with quantum groups or representations of quivers is useful and will help to motivate some of the cinstructions, but not a necessary prerequisite.

  • Exercises to Advanced Algebra I , Thursdays 10-12, Math. SR 0.008

  • Graduate Seminar on Advanced Algebra (S4A3), Mondays 16-18, Math. SR 1.008

  • Graduate Seminar on Representation Theory (S4A2), Thursdays 16-18, Math. SR. 1.007

  • Oberseminar Darstellungstheorie, Fridays 14-16, Math. SR 1.008
