Expertise

Representation theory, Homological Algebra, Algebraic TopologyProfile

I do research in representation theory of quivers, and its relationship to topology. The main goal of my research is to find connections between different fields of mathematics. For example, I am currently trying to explain why the formula for Reidemeister torsion resembles the Caldero-Chapoton formula for cluster variables. There is also a known bijection between labelled trees and exceptional sequences which I am trying to ``improve'' to get new results. I teach advanced graduate courses in Algebra, Topology and this semester I am teaching an advanced Complex Geometry course. WebpageCourses Taught
