Hi! Welcome to my website.

I am Principal Investigator of the DFG project TO 1135/1-1.

Research Interests

Representation Theory of Lie algebras
Algebraic Combinatorics
Buildings, Alcove Geometries
I am also interested in interacting with other sciences. Beginner in learning Linguistics.


With Christian Stump and Bernd Sturmfels, we organized the Einstein Workshop on Algebraic Combinatorics. It took place at the ZUSE institute in Berlin, at the FU Berlin Dahlem Campus, on November 1-2, 2018.

In June 2018 I spoke at the Workshop on Algebraic Combinatorics in Reims, France.

In March 2018 I gave an introductory lecture on Representation Theory at the Spring School Tropical Geometry meets Representation Theory in Cologne.

With Anna Seigal, we organized the workshop Interactions between Algebra and the Sciences in May 2017 at MPI MiS in Leipzig. Thanks to all the speakers and paticipants for making it so interesting.

With Claire Aoi, we presented our video Women and time, freedom and math at the opening of the exhibition "Women of Mathematics throughout Europe: A gallery of portraits" at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, November 2016.

This collaboration came about in the context of the workshop "Interactions between Algebra and the Sciences" (see below). We provide the number of generic solutions of some remarkably complicated polynomial systems arising in biochemistry.

Other things

My PhD thesis: The symplectic plactic monoid, words, MV cycles, and non-Levi branchings.

Some very rough notes I took from the course "Representation Theory II" which was taught by Catharina Stroppel in Bonn, 2011. The course covered the structure, classification and representation theory of complex semi-simple Lie algebras.

I keep a reading diary here. And here is a photo of me.
