My research interest mainly lies in the field of geometric group theory and its application to L2-invariants, and homological methods in group theory. Please see my research statement for more information. Below is a list of my papers.
 “A dynamical characterization of acylindrically hyperbolic groups,” Algebr. Geom. Topol., 19(4):1711–1745, 2019. published version arXiv:1707.04587
 “Cohomology of group theoretic Dehn fillings I: Cohen–Lyndon type theorems,” J. Algebra 542:277–307, 2020. published version arXiv:1809.08762
 “Cohomology of group theoretic Dehn fillings II,” (with Nansen Petrosyan) arXiv:1908.01290.
 “Wreath-like product groups and rigidity of their von Neumann algebras,” (with Ionut Chifan, Adrian Ioana, Denis Osin) arXiv:2111.04708.
 “Agrarian and L2-Betti numbers of locally indicable groups, with a twist,” (with Dawid Kielak) arXiv:2112.07394.
 “Invariant subalgebras of von Neumann algebras arising from negatively curved groups,” (with Ionut Chifan and Sayan Das) arxiv:2207.13775.
Besides topology and functional analysis, I am also interested in discrete geometry. In the following collaborated work, we prove a six-neighbor theorem for planar normal tilings.
 “On a Planar Six-neighbor Theorem and Its Application,” (with Longxiu Huang, Meiqi Wang, Tao Wang, Wen Zhang and Yusi Zhang) to appear at J. Math. Anal. Appl.
