# Tobias Barthel

I am a W2 Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in Bonn, interested in homotopy theory, tensor-triangular geometry, and their various interactions with other areas of mathematics. My work is supported by an ERC Starting Grant. I finished my PhD thesis under the supervision of Mike Hopkins in 2014, then spent the following years as a postdoc in Bonn as well as at the University of Copenhagen, partly supported by an EU Marie Curie Individual Fellowship.

Together with Paul Balmer, John Greenlees, Henning Krause, and Julia Pevtsova, we recently organized a HIM trimester program in Bonn on Spectral Methods in Algebra, Geometry, and Topology. More details are available on the webpage of the program.
