I am looking for PhD students!
If you are interested in writing a PhD thesis with me,
just send me an email.
My work is mostly in Algebraic Topology.
I study group actions on manifolds, algebraic varieties and other spaces.
For example, in recent years I have studied higher versions of torsionfreeness
(socalled syzygies) in the equivariant cohomology of spaces with group actions.
