Research: My research focuses on areas lying in the intersection between differential geometry and mathematical

physics. My topics of research include (super) symplectic and Poisson geometry, Lie algebroids and Lie groupoids,

as well as their many applications to (quantum) field theories, integrable systems and geometrical mechanics.
