I am an assistant professor (wissenschaftlicher Assistent) in the Geometry and Topology group led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Bauer. My field of research is low dimensional topology with a focus on the topology of smooth 4-manifolds. Before coming to Bielefeld, I had stops in Bonn, Budapest, and Utrecht.
I am interested Seiberg-Witten and Heegaard-Floer theory and their application to 4-manifold theory. Recently, I have been thinking about various incarnations of so called correction terms (or d-invariants or Froyshov invariants) and what they have to say about intersection forms of 4-manifolds with non-empty boundary. I am currently thinking about various Froyshov-type invariants that arise in the context of Manolescu's Seiber-Witten-Floer homotopy types.
Here's a list of my mathematical interests:
Here's a selection of some my conference highlights and a (most likely outdated) list of future events. Just in case anyone is wondering where they might have met me or appreciates a warning where they might run into me.
