I am a University Academic Fellow (UAF) at the University of Leeds . Before this I was a Post Doc Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, working with Prof. Karen Smith .
Even before, I was an FWF Erwin-Schroedinger fellow at the University of Toronto where my mentor was Prof. Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz .
During the spring semester 2015 I was a a post doctoral fellow at the Mittag-Leffler Institute (Stockholm, Sweden) for the Program Representation Theory and spring 2013 I spent as a research member at the MSRI in Berkeley for the Program Commutative Algebra . I graduated 2012 from the University of Vienna , where my thesis advisor was Prof. Herwig Hauser.
Leeds Algebra Seminar
In 2017-18 I am the organizer of the Algebra Seminar at the University of Leeds. The schedule of forthcoming talks can also be found here .
This semester I am teaching MATH5253M (Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry). All the important information of the course will be posted on the course webpage .
commutative algebra, (noncommutative) algebraic geometry, representation theory, singularity theory, homological algebra, cluster algebras
