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. I am excited about applying the theory to problems in the sciences. 

Furthermore, I am working on the development of algebraic tools for Topological Data Analysis.
