Research Interests: Physics and its mathematical modeling, Infinite dimensional geometry and Lie theory

I am particularly interested in the mathematical foundations of Quantum Mechanics, its algebraic and geometric roots, and its compatibility with the more classical fields of physics. The study of (local) symmetries and their "virtual" interactions playing there a major role, I am mainly focusing on establishing a proper framework for infinite dimensional symmetry groups or pseudogroups.
