Research interests

Group theory, especially geometric group theory and its connections with homological algebra, geometric topology and algebraic topology. I particularly like creating (or should I say discovering?) examples of mathematical objects (such as groups or spaces) that have unusual combinations of properties.
 
The main themes that have appeared in my research in recent years are: classifying spaces for families of subgroups; finiteness condition for groups and connections with algebraic K-theory; spaces satisfying non-positive curvature conditions such as CAT(0)-spaces; special classes of groups such as Artin groups, Coxeter groups and Bestvina-Brady groups. 

If you are interested in working on a PhD in any of these areas, I encourage you to contact me.
