My research interests are in quantum groups and their applications
to knots, 3-manifolds and conformal field theory. I am particularly
interested in the Freudenthal magic square which gives a uniform
construction of four of the five exceptional simple Lie algebras.
Here is the Vogel plane. The idea is that this should be thought of
as a two-parameter family of Lie algebras which contains every
simple Lie algebra. The three vertical lines are the three families
of classical simple Lie algebras. The other two lines are the last
two rows of the Freudenthal magic square.
