Forschung / Research
My research is in
symplectic and contact topology, particularly the theory
of pseudoholomorphic curves, applications to contact manifolds,
and symplectic field theory.
Here is my publications page.
I am an editorial advisor for the Proceedings / Journal /
Bulletin / Transactions of the LMS, in the area of symplectic and contact topology.
Seminars of interest:
Upcoming conferences / workshops:
 Singularities, Symmetries & Submanifolds 
18th UKJapan Winter School in Mathematics, University College London, January 4  7, 2017
 XI Workshop on Contact and Symplectic Topology,
Université de Nantes, January 26  28, 2017
 Geometric
Dynamics Days, RuhrUniversität Bochum, February 3  4, 2017
 Spring school
in convex symplectic geometry, RuhrUniversität Bochum, February 20  24, 2017
 British Isles Graduate Workshop
"Higgs bundles: algebraic and differential geometric perspectives", Isle of Wight,
April 2  8, 2017
 Symplectic geometry  celebrating the
work of Simon Donaldson, Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, August 14  August 18, 2017
 Summer school on Legendrian contact
homology, and a variety of augmentations, Krusenberg Herrgård, Knivsta, Sweden,
August 14  18, 2017
(Note: the above used to be a list of events that I was personally planning to attend, but
then I learned that some people are actually using it to find out what's
going on, so I've added more events that I won't necessarily be attending.
Thus if your main goal is to stalk me, this list will be only partially helpful.)
And some conferences in the recent past.
Past events that I organized:
PhD students:
 Agustín Moreno (began October 2014)
 Alexandru Cioba (began October 2012)
PhD students (cosupervised):
 Momchil Konstantinov (began October 2014; I supervised his "short" firstyear project for the LSGNT)
 Marcelo Alves (PhD 2014 from UL Brussels; cosupervised with Frédéric Bourgeois)
Thesis title: Growth rate of Legendrian contact homology and dynamics of Reeb flows
If you are interested in doing a PhD under my supervision, you should apply to
the Berlin Mathematical School.

A Frequently Asked Question
Question: Aren't you German?
Answer: No. Don't let my name, or my appearance, or the fact that I teach at a
German university or that you've overheard me speaking German with
colleagues fool you. I am, in fact, not German.
An Occasionally Asked Question
Question: Where did you learn to speak English so well?
Answer: It is my native language.
A Question That Is Asked Far More Often Than It Should Be
Question: Where did you learn to speak German so well?
Answer: I don't speak German that well, it only sounds like it
if you don't listen carefully.

musixtex, and then promptly forgot it)
