Member of the Number Theory Group


Principal research interests

-- The Tamagawa Number Conjecture of Bloch and Kato (and its equivariant refinement).

-- Iwasawa Theory (including aspects of non-commutative Iwasawa Theory).

-- Stark's Conjecture (and various natural integral refinements of this conjecture).

-- Epsilon constants and de Rham structure invariants associated to arithmetic schemes with a finite group action.

-- Algebraic K-theory and homological algebra.
