Research interests

Geometric Group Theory
Homological Group Theory
Discrete subgroups of Lie groups

Specific Interests
I am interested in properties of discrete groups and their associated quotient spaces whenever such groups act on topological spaces.
These spaces are generally contractible and have an additional structure such as being cellular, CAT(0), a manifold or more specifically a Lie group.

Research projects

2017-18: EPSRC First Grant: Classifying spaces for proper actions and almost-flat manifolds

2010-14: Funded by an OT Research Grant of University of Leuven 
Joint with Professor Karel Dekimpe and Professor Paul Igodt
The study of crystallographic actions and the corresponding orbit manifolds by creating and exploiting connections between the geometrical, topological, group theoretical and Lie algebraic aspects involved
