Research summary

My research is in the area of algebraic geometry, homological algebra, category theory and quantum algebra. I am investigating relations between certain abstract categorical structures and their applications to the problems of the theory of cluster algebras, number theory and dynamics. The results may be useful e.g. in understanding certain classical questions of algebraic geometry from the more general categorical point of view. For example, cluster positivity was reduced to the description of certain triangulated categories (matrix factorization categories).
