My PhD project is within the topic of operator algebras and more specifically classification of C*-algebras and related topics.

In general, C*-algebras may admit quite exotic behaviour limiting the possibility of any classification. However, with the right assumptions, it is possible to classify C*-algebras with a quite simple invariant known as Elliott's invariant. My main interest is in understanding these assumptions or approximation properties; in particular, I am fascinated by the notion of quasidiagonality, which is the main focus of my PhD.
