## Research

I work in noncommutative and homological algebra. A brief summary is
here.

A longer
description of my current research program, including work with students
and postdocs,
is here, while a more
condensed version
of recent work specifically in cohomology of Hopf algebras
is this research report.
My
past research is described here.
