I'm a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cologne. Since August 2020, I'm also a Professor 2 at NTNU in Trondheim, here is a link to my webpage at NTNU. 


The focus of my research is on the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras. In particular, I'm interested in cohomology theories, homological algebra, and connections of representation theory with other areas of mathematics.


LAGOON: Leicester Algebra and Geometry Open ONline Seminar in collaboration and with the support of ICMS: Every Thursday 12-1pm. Open to all! Click here for programme and details on how to join. 


Cologne Algebra Seminar: the seminar takes place every Tuesday at 2pm during term time, for more details see here
