I'm interested in Differential Geometry and its applications to General Relativity. Currently, I've been studying dark matter modeled as a scalar field, called wave dark matter, and comparing this description to observations of dwarf spheroidal galaxies, the smallest known types of gravitationally bound objects that have a significant presence of dark matter.
In the past, I have studied Lie Algebras, in particular classifying solvable Lie algebras of small dimension. My master's thesis was on classifying such Lie algebras through dimension seven.
