Research Interests

My research work is focused in noncommutative algebra and relative homological algebra, usually with a computational aspect. More specifically I have studied certain extremal examples of a special class of p-groups that arise as a co-Galois groups of flat covers over number rings. Additionally I have developed algorithms for the computation of some Gorenstein homological invariants of algebro-integral group rings.

Most of my computational work is done with the invaluable assistance of the GAP computer algebra system and the work of its authors and contributors. Recently I have become the maintainer of the perfect groups library and am working on completing the classification it represents and providing useful and efficient finding aids for the information it provides.
