I am interested in the following mathematical questions :

Currently I am looking at homological problems in the representation theory of group rings, algebras and classical orders. At this point you might like to have a look at the (french) summary of my research which I made for the 'HDR' (sort of a second thesis). In the meantime though, the summary became a little outdated.
  • The structure of a group ring, in particular over the integers, as well as certain number theoretic questions which are closely related to these problems.
  • Derived categories of module categories, in particular for finite dimensional algebras, group rings or classical orders over a local coefficient domain.
  • Various homology theories for groups, algebras and other algebraic structures.
  • Algebraic topology, in particular what turns around homotopy theory and classifying spaces.
