Postdoc at the University of Regensburg from October 2015.

Office M 005, phone: +49 941 943 4907.

Previous positions: MPIM Bonn (visitor in September 2015), HIM Bonn (visitor from May 2015 till August 2015), Göttingen (postdoc from July 2014 till April 2015), Münster (postdoc from July 2011 till June 2014), Berkeley (graduate student from August 2007 till June 2011, advised by Peter Teichner).

Research interests: geometric homotopy theory, abstract homotopy theory, factorization algebras, functorial field theory, Tomita-Takesaki theory.

Scans of papers by other authors.


Scripts for mathematics: automatic downloading of full texts and bibliographic information based on title or repository id.

tspell, a spell checker for TeX files like aspell (using libaspell), but with a much better support for TeX.

jpegtopdf and jbig2topdf, programs to assemble a bunch of JPEG/JBIG2 files into a PDF file. The latter was used to produce the bilevel PDF files on the scans page.

Macros for Knuth's TeX system.

Git tutorial for mathematicians.
