Our research is in mathematical physics, usually of an algebraic, geometric or topological flavor. We work on a diverse range of topics, including:

  • Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism. The BV formalism is a tool for quantization of gauge and gravity theories. We are studying the BV formalism on manifolds with boundaries and corners.
  • Higher category theory. One encounters higher categories when one studies locality properties of topological field theories: boundary conditions in a 2d TFT form a category, boundary conditions in a 3d TFT form a 2-category and so on.
  • Derived algebraic geometry. Derived and higher structures naturally appear when one studies non-transverse intersections or systems with symmetries. We are studying symplectic and Poisson structures in this setting and their relationship with the BV formalism.
