## Research

I am interested in the representation theory of infinite-dimensional(Kac-Moody) Lie algebras and quantum groups, especially its intersection with algebraic combinatorics(Macdonald polynomials) and number theory (modular forms, mock-theta functions). More recently, I have been trying to use the theory of Macdonald polynomials to understand the characters of Demazure mdoules.
