Research interests

My research belongs to the field of Algebraic Analysis. I am working on D-modules, which allow an investigation of linear homogeneous partial differential equations by algebraic methods. Many functions can be understood by their annihilating D-ideal. Computer algebra systems can help us to carry out concrete computations. I am excited about applying the theory to problems in the sciences. 

Another topic I currently got excited about is Topological Data Analysis.
