My thesis (preprint)

Research Interests:

I am in the algebraic geometry group of Klaus Altmann at the FU Berlin. My main interestes are computer algebra and toric varieties. The additional structure on toric varieties enables one to produce algorithms for problems in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra using methods from discrete mathematics. Thereby one gains not only a better understanding of these problems, but also significant performance improvement. There are still many open problems in this field. Furthermore, I am interested in generalizing these methods to varieties with an action by a torus with lower dimension, so-called T-varieties.
