I am a postdoc in the topology group of the Institute for Algebra and Geometry at KIT. My mathematical interests range around algebraic topology and L²invariants in geometry and group theory. I am member of the Priority Program 2026 "Geometry at Infinity" and of the RTG 2229 "Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces". Here you can find slides of a talk on "The construction of the regular 65.537gon with compass and straightedge" at the Day of Mathematics 2019 (in German).
