Research grants (team member):

• Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, CEEX Grant CEX 05-D11-11 (2005-2007)
• Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, CEEX Grant 2-CEX 06-11-20 (2006-2008)

Research interests:

• Rational homotopy theory

• Twisted homology

• Arrangements of hyperplanes

• Finite type invariants

 

My current research theme is an approach of the Serre problem for nilpotent, finitely generated groups. Another research direction concerns the study of the topology and combinatorics for arrangements of complex hyperplanes.
