Research Interests:

Moduli spaces and deformation spaces of finite and infinite translation surfaces; Veech groups (special subgroups of the mapping class group and (mostly) discrete subgroups of SL(2, R)); Teichmüller curves (special over number fields defined curves in moduli space M_g for projective regular algebraic curves of genus g); origamis (translation surfaces that can be defined by finite graphs); congruence and non congruence groups in SL(2,Z) and generalizations; groups of automorphisms of free groups  and generalizations.

More about my research, including in particular the software on origamis which was written in my working group, can be found on the research page of the working group.
