Research interests

My research interests are directed toward the representation theory of groups, in particular representation zeta functions  associated to groups. For instance, finitely generated abelian groups and groups which are extensions of abelian groups by finite groups, i.e. crystallographic groups. The representation zeta function is a Dirichlet generating function encoding the distribution of irreducible complex representations of a group G. I am particularly interested in rational representation zeta functions of these groups.
