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 ing group:
Algebra and Representation Theory in Bonn

Teaching Winter Semester 2020/2021

For people at Bonn University and at the MPI: you can subscribe to our working group mailing list:

  • Lecture Course: V5A5 Advanced Topics in Representation Theory
    Tuesday 10-12, Friday 10-12

    Participants need to register via zoom. The information can be found in the Basis system or in the sciebo folder from last semester's course. If you do not have access to this data, please send me an email.

    Course description: The course will give some insights into representation theory in context with categorifications. We will start with the theory of Soergel bimodules and then explain what 2-Moody representations are and where they come from. References will be given in the course.

    Knowledge about category O and Hecke algebras is assumed.

  • S4A2 Graduate Seminar on knot homology (jointly with P. Wedrich)
    Thursday 16-18

    The seminar will take place via zoom. Zoom link will be provided shortly before the semester starts.

  • S4A2 Graduate Seminar on Real Reductive Groups and d-Modules (run by Jens Eberhardt)

  • Oberseminar Darstellungstheorie
    Friday 14-16
