Completed his Doctoral Thesis in 1985, entitled "Ultraproducts of 1/2-groups" and later made his Habilitation in 1994. Peter is interested in many areas of abstract algebra, including ring theory, matrix theory, coding theory and nearrings.
He has gone on to publish over thirty papers, collaborating with many people in the process.
