Research interests

My research interests are semigroups, universal algebra and their application.  A sample of specific topics of interest include:

  • Finite basis problems for varieties, quasivarieties;
  • Computational complexity and decidability/undecidability, especially for problems relating to finite semigroups/algebras;
  • Semigroups of relations (relation algebras), functions (function semigroups), and their applications in computer science;
  • The theory of natural dualities;
  • Boolean topological algebras/structures. 
An up-to-date publication list can be found here, though Google scholar is probably just as useful.
