I am an algebraic topologist with a special interest in the spectrum of topological modular forms TMF. I am also interested in several related Understanding torus-equivariant TMF (joint with D. Gepner and T. Nikolaus)
Towards the Brauer group of TMF (joint with B. Antieau and V. Stojanoska)
and unrelated questions in abstract homotopy theory, stable and unstable chromatic homotopy theory and (derived) algebraic geometry.
Currently I am thinking mostly about the Bousfield-Kuhn functor, TMF with level structures, equivariant TMF and its applications to elliptic
genera and Brauer groups. This includes the following collaborations:

Previously, courses at the University of Virginia and the University of Bonn on linear algebra, multivariable calculus, algebra, homology theories and elliptic cohomology
Currently I supervise the master theses of Joost van Geffen, Jorge Becerra and Jeroen van der Meer and the PhD thesis of Jack Davies.
I supervised the master thesis of Simone Fabbrizzi in Bonn on the computation of Brauer groups of moduli stacks of elliptic curves
I supervised three bachelor theses so far on the topics de Rham cohomology, homology with local coefficients and genus formulae of modular curves. Generally I am happy to supervise bachelor theses in topology or on topics related to modular forms or elliptic curves.
