**Fields of interest:**

Algebra, Metric geometry, and Low-dimensional topology. More
specifically, my research explores geometric, analytic, combinatorial, and
computational aspects of group theory. Examples are (i) the study of
asymptotic invariants of groups: a group is considered as a metric
space and geometric properties of the space are investigated such as
the growth of balls or the isoperimetric inequalities; (ii) the
study of C*-algebras associated with groups. Interactions with computer
science and topological dynamics as well as probabilistic methods to
study "random" group theoretical objects (groups, group elements,
subgroups, etc.) are also my research topics.
