Our campus is on Wurundjeri land, and this has been
a place of learning and innovation for tens of thousands of years.
I acknowledge and respect all ancestral lands of Australia’s First Peoples
and I pay my respects to Elders past, present and future.

Research Interests

Elliptic cohomology and its role in representation theory. This program is joint with Arun Ram and brings together previous work of M. Ando, I. Rosu, I. Grojnowski, E. Looijenga, and Ginzburg-Kapranov-Vasserot.

Categorified character theory.

Another interest of mine is still in Moonshine and the Monster. (See also Baby Monsters.)
