My research is in representation theory. Representation theory is an ubiquitous area of mathematics relevant to different subjects such as algebra (associative algebras, Lie theory, Langlands program), number theory (automorphic forms), harmonic analysis (Fournier analysis) and geometry (invariant theory). The focus of my research is on the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras. In particular, I'm interested in cohomology theories, homological algebra, and connections of representation theory to other areas of mathematics.
