My research interests are in algebra, and combinatorics. I'm currently interested in:

  • Peak and descent sets of classical Coxeter groups
  • Root systems of Coxeter groups and reflection systems
  • Arithmetical Structures
  • Representation theory of Iwahori-Hecke algebras via a generalization of W-graphs
