About me:

I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow and Associate 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

- Higher categorical structures in quantum field theory
