Latest News:

Zur Izhakian from Bar-Ilan University will join our group next spring as Humboldt Research Fellow. Congratulations on obtaining this prestigious award!

In collaboration with Hannah Markwig we continue our series of 1-day workshops The North German Plain Goes Tropical in Göttingen on December 3, 2010. Please check here for the upcoming program.

As of Sept 1, Emanuele Delucchi joined our group. Welcome to Bremen!

I am on the program committee of FPSAC'11 to be held at Reykjavik, Iceland. The deadline for paper submission has passed, but please do check back for an exciting conference program!

A conference proposal under the title Tropical Geometry that I submitted in collaboration with Angelica Cueto, Erwan Brugalle, Martin Sombra and Luis Tabera has been approved by the Centro Internacional de Encuentros Matematicos, Castro Urdiales, Spain. The conference will most probably take place in Decemeber 2011. Please do check back for details!

Since last May, I am serving as Studiendekanin für Mathematik at our departmnet.

Last April, I have been appointed as Vertrauensdozentin of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes at the University of Bremen.

Recent News:

I was on a research leave at MSRI and UC Berkeley from Aug 2009 to March 2010.

In the fall, I co-organized the program on Tropical Geometry at MSRI, from January to March I was a visitor at the UC Berkeley Math Department. My absence from the University of Bremen was financed through a research grant of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

I am on the program committee of FPSAC'09. Check out the Call for Papers and consider submitting an extended abstract by November 17, 2008.

The North German Plain Goes Tropical -- check out the new tropical seminar series organized by Hannah Markwig and myself. First meeting: October 22, 2008

Bernd Sturmfels is giving a talk in our Joint Mathematics Colloquium (UB/JUB) on July 10, 2008. Check here for more information.

We are initiating the Bremen Lectures in Mathematics, a bi-annual series of lectures by renowned mathematicians. The first lectures with be given by Sergey Yuzvinsky on June 10 and 11, 2008. Check here for more information.

A Mercator Guest Professorship has been awarded to Sergey Yuzvinsky by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. He will spend 3 months at the University of Bremen starting June 2008. He will give a course on "Sheaves on finite posets." Check out the course announcement.

We are starting the Oberseminar Algebra, Geometrie und Topologie at the University of Bremen. Please check here for upcoming talks.

Job openings : We are seeking applicants for 3 graduate student positions in either my group or the group of Dmitry Feichtner-Kozlov at the University of Bremen. Recent graduates with interest and background in algebra, topology, geometry and/or discrete mathematics: we are offering exciting research opportunities in Combinatorial Algebraic Topology, Tropical Geometry and related fields. Please check the official job announcement of the University and our posting at academics.de! Closing date for applications is Feb 29, 2008.

I will give a lecture series on combinatorial aspects of tropical geometry at the introductory workshop of the spring program Real and tropical algebraic geometry at the Centre Interfacultaire Bernoulli at EPFL, Switzerland, January 21-26, 2008.

I have moved to the University of Bremen as of October 2007. Please note my new coordinates!

A half year program on Tropical Geometry at MSRI proposed by Ilia Itenberg, Grigory Mikhalkin, Bernd Sturmfels and myself has been approved for the fall of 2009!
Check out the official announcement here.

In the fall of 2006, I have spent 2 months at MSRI as a research professor within the program Computational Applications of Algebraic Topology.

While at MSRI, I co-organized a 1-day workshop on Tropical Geometry with Bernd Sturmfels. The result is a list of the top ten open problems in Tropical Geometry from an algebraic and combinatorial viewpoint. Have a look!

I was co-organizing a workshop at MSRI in August 2006: Recent Developments in Arrangements and Configuration Spaces. It was dedicated to Sergey Yuzvinsky, on the occasion of his 70th birthday.

Our daughter Esther Yael Feichtner was born on August 9, 2006 in Zurich!

My graduate student Emanuele Delucchi has defended his thesis at ETH Zürich in July 2006. Congratulations!
