About the Faculty

I am an algebraist by training and I am interested in algebra, geometry and graph theory. In mathematics I like to solve problems especially challenging ones, a good problem, a cup of tea and a warm blanket on a cold day, is my idea of a good time :)
Apart from mathematics I am deeply interested in fine arts, and I love to read.
I play correspondence chess on, my favorite chess player of all time is A. Alekhine, and my current favorite is Vishy Anand.  My favorite opening is two knights opening. With white I would almost always open e4.
