Welcome to my website

My name is Lukas Woike. Since October 2020, I am a postdoc in the topology group of the University of Copenhagen where my mentor is Nathalie Wahl.

Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of Hamburg supervised by Christoph Schweigert.

My research interests are algebraic and quantum topology, representation theory, in particular topological field theory.

In more detail, my current projects are concerned with applications of homotopy theory (in particular cyclic and modular operads) to non-semisimple representation categories leading to modular functors with values in chain complexes.

My email address is ljw <at> math.ku.dk

In August 2021, Nathalie and I are organizing a masterclass on “Topological Field Theories and Factorization Homology”

https://www.math.ku.dk/english/calendar/events/topological-field-theories-factorization-homology/

The speakers are Adrien Brochier and Claudia Scheimbauer.

Here is a survey made by Claudia to gauge the background of the participants:
