• I am a member of the Algebra, Lie Theory, and Representation Theory Group at the University of Ottawa, and the Network of Ontario Lie Theorists. The focus of my research is on the following areas:

  • Lie algebras, Lie groups, and representation theory.
  • Supergeometry, and its relationship with category theory

My mathematical research interests lie at the intersection of algebra, harmonic analysis, number theory, category theory, and mathematical physics.

• I am a recipient of a Homboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers.

Research Projects for Graduate Students:

Currently I have openings for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. Students with a strong background in algebra or analysis are invited to apply. Graduate students will be able to choose a project from a broad range of topics. Students can be co-supervised by other faculty members of our department who work in similar areas. For further information on our graduate program and application process, click here.

• Note that each year our department receives a large number of applications. If you mention my name as a potential supervisor, I will definitely review your application file carefully.

• If you are interested in doing research under my supervision, I highly recommend that you look at the research project reports written by my former students. You can find these reports on my Curriculum Vitae.

• If you are considering graduate studies under my supervision, you are welcome to schedule an appointment with me to discuss project options.

Research Projects for Undergraduate Students:

I am currently seeking NSERC USRA students for 2017-2018. If you are interested in working under my supervision, you should contact me via e-mail. To see a list of some (but certainly not all) available projects, click here or here.

I have several research projects for undergraduate students. Students will be supported financially by an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award , the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, or the Work–Study Program . Depending on the topic of the project, it may consist of one or more of the following: independent reading, writing a report, making a presentation, or running a computer experiment. You can contact me via e-mail for further information.
