Research Interest

I am in the algebraic geometry group of the Math Departement at Humboldt University in Berlin.
My field of interests floats around the "triangle": Moduli spaces - (Arithmetic) Algebraic geometry - Number theory.
Especially I study the geometric and arithmetic properties of moduli spaces of curves and Hurwitz stacks, twisted bundles, the geometric Langlands-correspondence and zeta functions.

Articles, Preprints and Notes

Geometric abelian class field theory, master's thesis, 2011

This thesis has a twofold purpose. First we give a detailed treatment of geometric abelian class field theory concentrating on Deligne's geometric proof in order to remedy the unfortunate situation that the literature on this topic is very deficient, partial and sketchy written. In the second place we give also a detailed treatment of tamely ramified geometric abelian class field theory and more importantly we give a new geometric proof for the tamely ramified theory by adapting and leaning on Deligne's geometric argument in the unramified case.


Conferences and schools


I studied mathematics at the Humboldt University in Berlin and finished my undergraduate studies at the Mathematical Institute at Utrecht University. My thesis advisors were Jochen Heinloth and Gunther Cornelissen. Parallel to that I was also participating on the Master Class 2010/2011 Moduli Spaces.
Before all this I studied Law and Political Sciences at the Faculty of Law at the Eötvös Lóránd University (ELTE) and graduated in 2006.
