Assistant Professor

## Educational Background

## Research Interests

My research lies at the intersection of representation theory, geometry and algebra and is intimately linked to problems arising in mathematical physics. More specifically, I study Hall algebras, Donaldson-Thomas theory, topological field theory and higher categorical structures in representation theory.
