I am an assistant professor at the University of Luxembourg. What I did before this can be read below.
My mathematical interests are in algebraic geometry, noncommutative algebra and higher structures, in particular I like to think about:
- the structure of derived categories, via exceptional collections and semiorthogonal decompositions
- deformation theory and Hochschild cohomology
- moduli spaces of sheaves on (noncommutative) varieties
- representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras
Besides mathematics, I am interested in LaTeX (and typesetting in general). I also like playing classical guitar, writing counterpoint and fugues, and reading.
In reverse chronological order, I was
a wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at the University of Bonn in the algebra and representation theory group,
and simultaneously an FWO postdoc at the University of Antwerp and University of Hasselt
a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn
a PhD fellow (of the Research Foundation—Flanders) in mathematics, in the research group on fundamental mathematics, at the University of Antwerp. In 2017 I defended my thesis Connections between commutative and noncommutative algebraic geometry, written under the supervision of Wendy Lowen and Michel Van den Bergh.
a master student at École Polytechnique, where I wrote a mémoire On the homotopy theory of dg categories under the supervision of Bernhard Keller
What happened before that is hidden in the mists of time. It involved computers.
