In broad terms, I study the mathematics of symmetries, especially the
symmetries underlying quantum physics.
My research areas are geometric and combinatorial representation
theory, as well as mathematical physics.
These days I am also interested in the interplay between representation
theory and other disciplines, including
quantum information/quantum computing, quantum field theory, and data
