Research Interests
I am broadly interested in the interplay between dynamical systems and operator algebras. My research focuses on C*algebraic approaches to studying topological and algebraic dynamical systems, often by computing invariants and determining how these invariants help to understand the underlying dynamics.
On the dynamical side of things, the systems I look at tend to be "selfsimilar" in one way or another. This includes—but is not limited to—iterated function systems, (topological) graph dynamics, selfsimilar actions (and more general actions of groups on trees) and semigroups. On the C*algebraic side of things I use groupoids and C*correspondences to provide noncommutative models of dynamical systems, and use invariants of the associated algebras to understand properties of the dynamics.
I am currently employed as an Associate Research Fellow as the University of Wollongong on an ARC Discovery Project grant under Distinguished Professor Aidan Sims.
I also organise the Wollongong OANCG Seminar. If you have any inquires about the seminar, please send me an email.
