Research interests

I studied in Paris and Oxford, and began my career in Toronto (Canada). My research interests are in C*-algebras, which is a branch of ring theory having a particularly beautiful representation theory. I introduced and developed the now well-known CFP property of C*-algebras. I have also applied C*-algebraic methods to establish the now popular unbounded Kasparov product approach to proving index theorems. In other interests, I have worked with bi-algebras and also with corona algebras, which are a particular kind of very large C*-algebra in which various constructions based on large cardinal numbers and/or unusual topological spaces allow surprising results to be proven.
