## Konrad Voelkel

PhD student of pure mathematics at the Graduiertenkolleg GK1821, "Cohomological Methods in Geometry" (Freiburg, Germany), working on applications of homotopy theory to algebraic geometry (motivic homotopy theory). My advisor is Matthias Wendt, my second advisor Annette Huber.

**Summer 2015**

I focus on my thesis project for the whole term.

**23.02.2015** there was a DMV-Studierendenkolleg in Freiburg, on "Topology and Big Data", with lectures introducing newcomers to Persistent Homology.

**Office hours** (in theory):

Monday to Friday 9-12

Wednesday + Friday 13-18

**Preprints** (not so many yet) can be found on the arXiv.

You can **contact me**, look at my CV or look up where you've seen me and which upcoming conferences and summer schools I will attend.

More info on my **PhD project** "Stable Motivic Cell Structures of Spherical Varieties" is available here. Other (also non-mathematical) project ideas can be found here.

I blog about mathematics,

and recommend reading **those blog posts I liked most**.
