Post-doctoral assistant in Mathematics

Universiteit Gent


I am a post-doctoral researcher in Algebra at the department of Mathematics: Algebra and Geometry, Universiteit Gent in the group of Tom De Medts. My current research focuses on set-theoretic solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation and relating their properties to groups, rings and a recently introduced notion called skew braces. Vice versa, I employ set-theoretic solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation to construct exciting groups and rings, containing polycyclic groups, RAAG’s, quadratic algebras and Jacobson radical rings.

  • Set-theoretic solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation
  • Skew left braces and generalizations
