My research focuses on the structure and K-theory of C*-algebras. I am particularly interested in C*-algebras associated to various sorts of (generalized) topological dynmical systems. Starting with such a system (e.g. a discrete group acting on a topological space by homeomorphisms) one constructs a C*-algebra and studies its properties and how they relate back to properties of the underlying system. Using the language of groupoids as a unifying framework, I try to uncover the principles underlying the behaviour of seemingly very different classes of examples.
