My research interests: Representation theory and quantum algebra.

Representation theory
is a branch of mathematics concerned with the question how to "realise" abstract algebraic constructions by means of symmetries of some object (e.g., by means of linear transformations of a vector space).
Quantum algebra
is a relatively young but very active field, which includes certain directions of research in Hopf algebras, Lie theory, noncommutative ring theory, combinatorics, etc. Its scope roughly corresponds to the scope of the math.QA section of

Of particular interest to me are applications of quantum groups in Lie theory and representation theory.
