Research interests

My main research interest lies at the intersection of Combinatorics with Algebraic Geometry and Commutative algebra. I wrote my thesis in the area of toric geometry and commutative algebra. Furthermore I like tropical geometry and T-varieties, i.e. varieties with an action by a lower dimensional torus.

A major part of my work involves developing and implementing algorithms for the problems I encounter. I mainly use the systems Macaulay2, polymake, Singular and TOPCOM.
