Research interests and background

My research focuses on problems in representation theory and algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in the topology, geometry, and combinatorics of spaces naturally arising from representation theory. Recently I have been thinking about Bridgeland stability conditions on triangulated categories, and associated braid group actions. Specific topics of interest include Bridgeland stability conditions, perverse sheaves, quiver varieties, equivariant cohomology, and Bernstein–Sato polynomials.

My papers and preprints are on my research page. A CV is available here (html) and here (pdf).


In Semester 2 of 2024, I am teaching Algebra 3: Advanced Topics in Algebra (MATH3354/MATH6216). Older teaching is listed on my teaching page.

Current and upcoming activities

  • Oct 2024: Special session on Algebra and Representation Theory, SMRI, University of Sydney (co-organised with Bregje Pauwels)
