Background

My main research interests lie in the representation and character theory of finite groups, permutation groups and applications to number theory and combinatorics, and finite group theory in general. I am interested in studying groups or group structures using several important numerical invariants of the groups such as character degrees (ordinary and modular), p-parts of the degrees or character values such as zeros of characters. In permutation group theory, I study derangements, that is, permutations without fixed points, and their applications in number theory and graph theory, permutation characters and permutation polytopes. Recently, I am also interested in studying the influence of real conjugacy class sizes on the group structures.
