  • Mathematics


Algebra, representation theory, and Lie groups

My research focuses on representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras and involves algebra with combinatorial flavor and emphasis on explicit constructions. Generally speaking, representation theory provides mathematical tools to understand the notion of symmetry and encompasses classification and description of representations and the study of their properties. I am especially interested in Howe duality and branching laws.
