I am broadly interested in algebra and geometry. More specifically, I work on questions in algebraic geometry inspired by string theory. In particular, my interests include Gromov-Witten theory, quantum cohomology, derived categories of coherent sheaves and mirror symmetry.
- Seminar on linear algebraic groups
- Reading group on perfectoid spaces (jointly with Marco Hien and Marc Nieper-Wißkirchen)
I am involved in the organisation of
- Oberseminar zur Algebra und Zahlentheorie
- Augsburger Mathematisches Kolloquium
In November 2019 we were honoured to host Alexander Smirnov from St. Petersburg. There were two special events on this occasion:
Smirnovis one of the most common last names in Russia. However, back in St. Petersburg I did write my master thesis under Alexander's supervision.)
