Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Kemper’s research centers on invariant theory, commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, group theory and representation theory. His particular interest lies in algorithmic aspects of invariant theory and their possible applications – in image processing for example.
After studying mathematics in Karlsruhe and Heidelberg, he completed his doctorate (1994) and lecturer qualification (1999) under Prof. Matzat in Heidelberg. Since 2002, Prof. Kemper has been a full professor at TUM. He has worked at several institutions outside Germany, including Berkeley, Sydney, Singapore, Ann Arbor and Paris.
