About Me

I am a postdoc in the Bielefeld Representation Theory Research group (BIREP) under Professor Dr. Henning Krause at the Faculty of Mathematics at Bielefeld University.

I graduated from the University of Bonn, where I used to be a student of Professor Dr. Jan Schröer in the Algebra and Representation Theory Research group.

My research lies at the interface between algebra and combinatorics. In particular, I am interested in Fomin-Zelevinsky's theory of cluster algebras, in Lie theory, and in the representation theory of quivers.

Here you can find a short curriculum vitae, and informations about my travels including selected talks.

Papers and Preprints

Maximum antichains in posets of quiver representations. This joint work with Florian Gellert concerns posets of quiver representations. Sperner's theorem asserts that the poset of subrepresentations of a given set-valued representation of A1 is Sperner. We prove Sperner theorems for subrepresentations posets attached to set-valued representations of certain star-shaped quivers and to certain linear representations of A2. Moreover, we construct maximum antichains in monomorphism posets of indecomposable representations for certain orientations of An. [arXiv]

On the approximate periodicity of sequences attached to noncrystallographic root systems, to appear in Experimental Mathematics. We study Fomin-Zelevinsky's mutation rule in the context of noncrystallographic root systems. Whereas the cluster variables in a finite-type cluster algebra of rank 2 (attached to a crystallographic root system) form a periodic sequence, we observe an approximate periodicity for noncrystallographic root systems of rank 2. Moreover, we describe matrix mutation classes for type H3 and H4. [arXiv]

Diophantine equations via cluster transformations, Journal of Algebra 462 (2016), 320-337. Motivated by Fomin and Zelevinsky's theory of cluster algebras we introduce a variant of the Markov equation; we show that all natural solutions of the equation arise from an initial solution by cluster transformations. [Journal], [arXiv]

The divisor class group of a cluster algebra, Oberwolfach Reports 8 (2014), 484-485. The divisor class group is a useful tool to decide whether a given algebra is a unique factorization domain. We use the divisor class group to study the ring theoretic nature of cluster algebras. In particular, we give a sufficient and computer-checkable criterion to decide whether an acyclic cluster algebra is a UFD. [Journal]

Quantisation Spaces of Cluster Algebras, January 2014. This joint work with Florian Gellert concerns the question: When does a cluster algebra have a quantization and how unique is it? Florian maintains a complementary webpage. [arXiv]

Acyclic cluster algebras from a ring theoretic point of view, October 2012. Many authors have studied Fomin-Zelevinsky's cluster algebras combinatorially (what do Laurent coefficients count?), representation-theoretically (what triangulated categories are they a shadow of?) and linear algebraically (what are good bases?). We want to know: What is a cluster algebra as an algebra? We focus on two questions: When is a cluster algebra a unique factorization domain? What are irreducible elements? [arXiv]

Quantum cluster algebras and dual canonical bases, Oberwolfach Reports 8 (2011), no. 10, 564-565. A short survey about the connections between Lusztig's canonical basis and Fomin-Zelevinsky's cluster algebra. [Journal]

Quantum cluster algebras of type A and the dual canonical basis, Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society 108 (2014), no. 1, 1-43. The article concerns the subalgebra Uv(w) of the quantized universal enveloping algebra of the complex Lie algebra sln+1 associated with a particular Weyl group element of length 2n. We verify that Uv(w) can be endowed with the structure of a quantum cluster algebra of type An. [Journal], [arXiv].

A quantum cluster algebra of Kronecker type and the dual canonical basis, International Mathematics Research Notices 2011 (2011), no. 13, 2970-3005. The article studies the quantized cluster algebra structure induced by the dual canonical basis associated with a terminal module over the path algebra of the Kronecker quiver. [Journal], [arXiv]
