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.


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


Winter 2014/15
I'm organising the programme of the GK-seminar around "homogeneous and symmetric spaces".

(past teaching stuff)


27--28.11.2014 there was a small workshop in Freiburg, around Non-Computational Computer Tools for Pure Mathematics, exploring the space between mathematical knowledge management and proof assistants, with a look on univalent foundations.


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.

I blog about mathematics,
and recommend reading those blog posts I liked most.
