|In September 2002 I finished my studies at the UvA with the master's thesis
Lie algebra cohomology and Macdonald's conjectures
On 6 March 2007 I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis Periodic cyclic homology of affine Hecke algebras at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. You can find the Dutch summary here.
In November 2008 the Dutch Genootschap ter bevordering van natuur-, genees- en heelkunde awarded me the Andreas Bonn medal for my research as a PhD-student.
In June 2011 I obtained my Habilitation at the Universität Göttingen. For this occasion I gave a Lehrvortrag and I wrote an extensive Forschungsbericht (in German).
