What I am doing

I am currently a PhD student of the Mathematics Münster Graduate School at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Linus Kramer.

I am interested in group theory, buidlings -- especially those of spherical type -- and incidence geometry.

What I have done

In my bachelor's thesis I wrote about projections and gated sets in metrical spaces and buildings and my master's thesis was about group cubization. (Group Cubization was introduced here: Damian Osajda. Group cubization. Duke Math J., 167(6):1049 1055, 2018. With an appendix by Mikaël Pichot. )

Why group theory

I like group theory because the definition of a group is very simple, easy to understand and easy to explain, but you can already get to many interesting and elegant proofs just by looking at groups. You don't need some huge theories and constructions in order to see the beauty of mathematics there. And this alone makes the power of logical thinking so tangible to me. I also really enjoy to look at the same object from different perspectives and to try to understand it holistically by considering all the different forms in which it can present itself. Group theory seems to me like a great symbiosis of geometry and algebra. The way we are sometimes able to translate pictures into formulae and vice versa is very captivating to me.


During my bachelor's studies I was a tutor for Mathematics For Physicists III (WS16/17). During my master's studies I was a tutor for Analysis I (WS19/20) and Linear Algebra II (SS19).


I am math ambassador for the Stiftung Rechnen since 2017. I receive funding from the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung through the Dissertation Plus program.
