Claudia I. Scheimbauer

About me

I am a tenure-track professor at TU München. Besides Munich, this academic year you can also find me visiting the programs Quantum Symmetries and Higher Categories and Categorification at MSRI in Berkeley, USA; and at the program Higher Structures and Field Theory at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute in my beautiful hometown Vienna.

I am interested in the intersection of mathematical physics and algebraic topology, more precisely in the mathematical study of field theories using methods from homotopy theory. My research is concerned with several questions in the realm of functorial extended field theories and higher structures using tools like factorization algebras/factorization homology and derived symplectic geometry. I am also interested in the required higher categorical foundations for using homotopy theory in the study of field theories.
