**Marc Kegel**

Welcome to my webpage. I am a visiting lecturer (Gastdozent) in the
working group of Prof. Chris Wendl at the
Humboldt University Berlin.

From September 2014 till July 2018 I was a member of the working group of Prof. Hansjörg Geiges at the
University of Cologne where I graduated in January 2017 about
"Legendrian knots in surgery diagrams and the knot complement problem".

The fields of my research include low-dimensional topology,
contact geometry, symplectic
topology and their interactions.
