- Algebra/Algebraic Geometry
My research is directed towards questions in harmonic analysis for reductive p-adic groups. In particular, recently I have been interested in stability questions. My work uses a great deal of Bruhat-Tits theory, and, to this end, I also study the structure of reductive groups over nonarchimedean local fields.
