About me:

I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow and Proleptic Assistant Professor in Mathematical Physics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham.

Before that I was a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Regensburg, a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh (funded by a research fellowship of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG), and a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wuppertal. I did my PhD in the Department of Theoretical Physics at the University of Wuerzburg.

More information about me can be found in my CV. My ORCID ID is 0000-0001-6790-1784.

Research interests:

- Mathematical physics, algebra and topology

- Category theory and homotopical algebra in quantum field theory

- Classical and quantum gauge theory on Lorentzian manifolds

- Noncommutative differential geometry, Hopf algebras and deformation quantization

Publications:

- See Google Scholar or arXiv or Research Gate or INSPIRE or my full List of Publications.

Teaching:

- See my CV for a list of courses that I have taught or assisted.
