My primary research interest is general algebra and its applications.
Most of my work addresses various classes of non-associative algebraic structures such as quasigroups, loops, medial and self-distributive structures, using
methods of group theory and universal algebra.
My current research projects are mostly about quandles, their use in knot theory, and other structures related
to the Yang-Baxter equation.
I am also interested in automated theorem proving in service of solving mathematical problems, and cooperate
with the ARG group at CIIRC.
