Niklas C. Affolter

I am a research assistent at the Technical University Berlin, at the Department of Geometry and Mathematical Physics, working under the supervision of Boris Springborn.

I'm organizing the X-Student Research Group Combinatorial solutions to discrete integrable systems in the WS22/23. It's an opportunity for students to do their own math research, combining problems from different areas of math.

I spent half a year at ENS Paris (01.03. - 01.09.2022) in the group of Dmitry Chelkak, but now I'm back!

I coorganized the Discrete Geometric Structures workshop 2022, which was great fun.
