I am a Ph.D. student of Catharina Stroppel in the Algebra and Representation Theory in Bonn working group.
I am a member of BIGS and the IMPRS program of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. I am supported by a Deutsche Telekom Stiftung scholarship.

NEW: We are organising the workshop Young Women in Representation Theory at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics Bonn (June 23-25, 2016).


I study Generalized Weyl Algebras, in particular I am interested in

  • Primitive ideals
  • The center and commutative subalgebras
  • (Highest) weight modules
  • Categorification of (highest) weight modules

  • of Generalized Weyl Algebras, but also for simple Lie algebras, Quantum groups etc.

    Furthermore, I am interested in diagram algebras and related algebras, like the affine nilTemperley-Lieb algebra or the plactic algebra, for which I look at

  • Graphical representations via particle configurations
  • Bases
  • Relationship to affine cellular algebras
  • Description of the center.

  • Here are my posters displayed at the annual BIGS poster exhibition:
