ABOUT ME

 

Biography

I joined the School of Mathematics at UNSW in 2013, after temporary positions at Vanderbilt University in the USA, Cardiff University in the UK, and IMPA in Brazil. My research interests are in the area of subfactors, which lies at the nexus of operator algebras, quantum topology, and representation theory.

Education

  • PhD in Mathematics (UC Berkeley, 2006)
  • BA (Yeshiva University, 2000)

RESEARCH

 

Research in Detail

In my dissertation and during the following years I worked on the problem of classifying intermediate subfactors, and in particular quadrilaterals of factors. In recent years I have worked on applying the representation theory of fusion categories to analysing the structure of subfactors.
