I am Dr. Oliver Labs, a mathematician with interests in art, design, programming, and several aspects of mathematics including math history.
I currently work on a research project at the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. Besides, I run my business called MO-Labs creating math art, mathematical sculptures, mathematical jewelry, mathematical models (3d models), and other mathematical objects. From 2001 to 2016, I did research and teaching at various universities, and even at a school (from 2007-2008, parallel to my university job).
I still often do a little bit of teaching (although I am not affiliated to any university), e.g. regularly in the 50plus program at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
My mathematical interests include:
- math objects such as math sculptures or math jewelry which I create and sell via my business MO-Labs Math Objects Dr. Oliver Labs (see MO-Labs.com),
- math software, in particular e-learning software such as dynamic geometry software,
- math history, in particular related to algebra and geometry, more specifically the history of caustics and the history of geometrical models
- math teaching, and
- math research.
Apart from my teaching, I give talks about some of the aspects above, or present some of my math sculptures, math jewelry, or illustrations, at other occasions such as at exhibitions, at schools, or at universities.
Enjoy browsing my pages, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. Or if you simply want to purchase one of my objects – even if it is a math object which is not yet available online.
