Current research activity

( noncommutative ) differential topology and geometry ... and ... their uses in mathematical physics

Main lines of research:
noncommutative manifolds (construction of metric and spin structures, vector and principal bundles),
harmonic analysis on noncommutative manifolds (Dirac and Laplace operators, index theorems),
noncommutative gauge theories (duality equations, constructions of solutions, study of moduli spaces),
Hopf algebras and quantum groups (as noncommutative manifolds, their use as generalized symmetries),

...  ...
