My research interests are in polyhedral geometry, computational methods, and its connections with various other fields like (algebraic) combinatorics, algebraic geometry and convex optimization.

In particular I work on questions about lattice polytopes, their structure and classifications of subfamilies. For more see my preprints and slides of some talks.

My publications according to Zentralblatt, ORCID, and arXiv.
