Research interests

I am interested in representations and invariants of algebraic groups like the general linear group; mostly in characteristic p, but also in characteristic 0. The representations of the symplectic groups are strongly connected with the representations of the Brauer algebras. I am also interested in algebraic group actions. Geometry can help to understand representation theory and the other way around.
