My research interests are centred around algebraic and geometric topology, including:
 configuration spaces of various kinds,
 moduli spaces of manifolds,
 monopole moduli spaces,
 surface braid groups, loop braid groups, mapping class groups (their representation theory, lower central series, ...),
 polynomial functors,
 groupcompletions of topological monoids,
 multicrossing numbers of knots and links,
 "big" mapping class groups (mapping class groups of infinitetype surfaces),
 connections of any of the above to other parts of mathematics.
A summary of my previous work is here (last updated February 2024).
