Algebraic geometry and representation theory. More specifically, I am interested in the McKay correspondence, toric varieties, quiver representations, moduli of noncommutative del Pezzo surfaces and tensor triangulated categories.

My time at the ICTP helped me create links with the mathematics community in my home continent Africa.

Links I aim to maintain while at Loughborough.

i) Mainly with my friend Ulrich Kraehmer, I helped organise two conferences there: Ghana in 2016 and Tanzania in 2018:
