We will report on work in progress. We construct a class of super quantum groups associated to Nichols algebras of super type A and prove that their representation categories provide examples of non-semisimple modular tensor categories. The main tools come from recent work by Laugwitz-Walton, where braided Drinfeld doubles and relative monoidal centers are employed to construct such modular categories.

Joint work with Robert Laugwitz (The University of Nottingham).
