Research Interests

My research interests are in C*-algebras and their applications. C*-algebras and their measure theoretical counterpart, von Neumann algebras, are algebras of operators on a Hilbert space. They were first motivated by quantum theory and occurred in group representations and ergodic theory. They can also be characterised abstractly as Banach algebras by a very natural norm condition. The understanding of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras has seen remarkable       progress in the past decades which has lead to far reaching classification results using methods originally developed in topology, notably K-theory. C*-algebras have occurred in many other branches of mathematics. C*-algebra theory is a rapidly growing field with many exiting open problems and many possible PhD projects. I am particularly interested in classification of simple nuclear C*-algebras, non commutative dimension concepts, dynamical systems,  special examples of C*-algebras, in particular the very rich class of Cuntz algebras and various generalisations (graph, Pimsner, higher rank, continuous etc.), K-theory for those C*-algebras, approximation properties of C*- and von Neumann algebras, dynamical systems and their applications to C*-algebras, noncommutative geometry (spectral triples).
