A picture of me

I am a wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (postdoc) at the University of Hamburg. My research interests lie in algebraic topology and homotopy theory, in particular string topology of classifying spaces and its applications to group homology and cohomology.

I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2010. My advisor there was Professor Ralph Cohen.
