Research Interests
My general research area is group theory. More specifically, I have written a preprint on right-angled Artin groups and am writing my thesis on a generalisation of Tate cohomology. Moreover, I am applying condensed mathematics to address a question about cohomology of pro-p groups for which my thesis work is relevant. The underlying theme of all my projects is the quest of understanding the structure of groups. For this I like to employ homological, geometric or combinatorial methods or to look at the topology of a group.
