Research Interests

My research focuses on studying DG-categories and derived categories associated to algebraic varieties and applying the knowledge of them to solve problems in various areas of algebraic geometry, including:

* Orbifolds and the McKay correspondence
* Categorification problems
* Mirror symmetry
* Moduli spaces
* Quiver representations
