Presently I am visiting professsor at the Eduard Čech Institute for Algebra, Geometry and Physics in Prague, in Prof. Vladimír Souček‘s group
I have my PhD in theoretical physics but have worked in math departments ever since. Have been a postdoc in maths and mathematical physics for four years at Hamburg University. Had then a few months of guest researcher position at HIM and then at MPI in Bonn. From 2009 to 2014 I had a postdoc position in Prof. Ieke Moerdijk’s group, first in Utrecht and then the group moved to Nijmegen in 2012. The end of 2014 I was a guest researcher at Paris-Diderot visiting Gabriel Catren’s group in a program on homotopy type theory and the foundations of physics.
My research is about mathematical theory building in theoretical fundamental physics. With Hisham Sati we have edited a survey book that should give a good sense of modern insights into the general abstract structure of the world:
Concretely the questions that I am thinking about myself are laid out a bit in my
I have written a technical book about this question:

This is the kind of stuff that I am working on.

Here is the video recording of a sample research talk that I have given recently:
Fractures, Ideles and the Differential Hexagon, talk at CUNY workshop on differential cohomologies, New York, August 2014 (video recording)
I like to put information into context. For that purpose I had started the
in November 2008. It has now more than 10,000 pages (some very short, but some very long).
