Research
#### Research Interests

#### Research Interests

My main research area is the representation theory of Lie algebras and quantum groups. I am in particular interested in quantum group analogs of symmetric spaces and their relations to other areas such as braid groups, harmonic analysis, homological algebra, integrable systems, and noncommutative geometry.
