This is me, wielding my trusty water bottle to protect Imperial China from Mongol invasion.

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 on the editorial board of Algebraic and Geometric Topology. I am no longer (but was until December 2020) an editorial advisor for the Proceedings / Journal / Bulletin / Transactions of the LMS.

Seminars of interest:

Upcoming conferences / workshops:

(Note: the above used to be a list of events that I was personally planning to attend, but then I learned that some people were actually using it to find out what's going on, so I started adding 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. On the other hand, I've recently become somewhat lazy about keeping it up to date -- the Covid pandemic is partly to blame -- so in the mean time there are other people out there with much better lists on their homepages.)

And some conferences in the recent past.

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.

Some nonmathematical things

Trockne Blumen (the reason why I once spent a whole week learning musixtex, and then promptly forgot it)
