Research

My research focuses on central simple algebras, and in particular division algebras, but I am also interested in related algebraic objects, such as quadratic forms and Clifford algberas. Lately I have also started studying the cohomological part of the theory, i.e. Galois Cohomology, K-Theory and the cohomology of differential forms.
