Research Overview

My current research interests lie at the junction between different areas of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Physics: Algebraic Topology, Homological Algebra and Deformation Theory, Noncommutative Geometry and Conformal Field Theory.

The projects I am presently working on aim to apply ideas and methods of quantum field theory (Feynman path integrals) to classical problems of algebra and geometry, such as the study of moduli spaces. I am also interested in algebraic topology, rational homotopy theory and deformation theory.
