Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include Engel type conditions in groups, classes of generalised nilpotent groups, problems of Burnside type, Lie ring methods in groups and certain linear structures associated with Engel groups that are called Symplectic Alternating Algebras.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
