Research Interests

My main area of research is functional analysis, with a specialisation in operator algebras. I am an expert in C*-algebras associated to groupoids. Groupoids are mathematical objects used to enhance the mathematical theory of symmetry (group theory) by allowing for additional internal symmetries. In associating a C*-algebra to a groupoid, the structure of the C*-algebra can be seen in the structure of the groupoid.

I also work in ring theory. In particular, I am interested in the connections between ring theory and operator algebras.
