I am Sven Raum, working as associate professor at Stockholm University in Sweden. My research focuses on operator algebras and their interaction with groups and group-like structures, such as Hecke algebras, groupoids, quantum groups and tensor categories. Important links between operator algebras and these objects are given by unitary representations and the algebras they generate, for example reduced group C*-algebras and group von Neumann algebras.
Besides research mathematics, I enjoy thinking about didactics of higher education. In my free time, I like learning languages, doing sports and cooking.
