My research interests fall into the area of geometric group theory. That is, I study groups as coarse geometric objects. I am particularly interested in lattices on buildings, such as arithmetic groups and Kac-Moody groups. Other classes of groups I am interested in are relatives of Thompson's groups F, T and V and Artin groups. Many of these groups act on non-positively curved spaces, although often not cocompactly.

I am Heisenberg professor at JLU Gießen.

My former student Eduard Schesler did his PhD on Sigma-invariants of S-arithmetic subgroups of Borel groups.
