research I am interested in algebra, representation theory, and tensor categories; more specifically: - Deligne's interpolation categories and their relatives, monoidal centers - algebraic Dirac operators, Dirac cohomology, cohomology functors - PBW deformations, various kinds of Hecke and Cherednik algebras - "easy quantum groups", diagram algebras - p-groups - computer algebra (arxiv:2206.08226) with Verity Mackscheidt: Interpolating PBW Deformations for the Orthosymplectic Groups (2022) (arxiv:2106.05798) with Robert Laugwitz and Sebastian Posur: Indecomposable objects in Khovanov--Sazdanovic's generalizations of Deligne's interpolation categories (2021) (arxiv:2105.10492) with Nate Harman and Robert Laugwitz: The indecomposable objects in the center of Deligne's category Rep(S_t) (2021) (arxiv:2003.05639) with Ghislain Fourier and Viktor Levandovskyy: Gröbner bases for fusion products.
