Interests: Algebraic Geometry, Derived categories. Specifically equivariant derived categories of surfaces and semi-orthogonal decompositions.
Research group: Algebraic Geometry

Research interests:

My research interests lie in algebraic geometry and non-commutative geometry through the study of the derived category of coherent sheaves. I am interested in applications to mirror symmetry through studying Bridgeland stability conditions on the derived category. My research also focuses on semi-orthogonal decompositions of equivariant derived categories and the interaction between non-commutative and commutative resolutions of the quotient spaces
