From 9/2011 – 8/2012:

Katrin Becker’s research deals with fundamental aspects of string theory. In recent years, her work has focused on proving the existence and studying the geometric properties of corresponding mathematical spaces in string theory. The properties of the vast majority of mathematical spaces, the so-called torsional spaces, are still to be uncovered.
