Ralf Meyer held the position of Researcher at Westf. Wilhelm-Universität Münster from 1997 to 2005. Since then, he is Professor at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. In 1999, Meyer received his Doctoral degree from WWU Münster. His areas of interest are noncommutative geometry, including some of its applications in topology, mathematical physics, and number theory. In particular, he works on noncommutative topology: topological K-theory, bivariant K-theory, cyclic homology; actions of groups on operator algebras and generalizations (groupoids, quantum groups, higher groupoids, and inverse semigroup actions). His work also includes analysis in bornological vector spaces, homological algebra in the context of topologies or bornologies, and some aspects of the representation theory of p-adic groups.
