Research Interests

My research is mainly in Lie Theory and Representation Theory. In particular, I am interested in the following topics:

  • Lie (color) algebras: structure, representations, and cohomology

  • Lie coalgebras and Lie comodules

  • Lie bialgebras and the classical Yang-Baxter equation

  • Leibniz algebras and Leibniz bimodules

  • Leibniz (co)homology

  • Hopf algebras and tensor categories

  • quantum groups at roots of unity

  • small quantum groups

  • Frobenius algebras
