My research is composed of two parts.
On the one hand, I study the impact of teaching methods on students’ learning and conceptual understanding (for college-level courses). The goal is to evaluate to what extent teaching methods such as the use of clickers or flipped classroom are beneficial and what makes them so. I am also interested in assessing the impact of curriculum revision, both on students and instructors.
On the other hand, I study weak Hopf algebras (which are generalisations of Hopf algebras) and their representations. I am also interested in the link between these objects and fusion categories.
