My main research interest is finite projective geometry. In particular, I study the interplay between the combinatorial properties of particular sets and their algebraic description.
Moreover, I am interested in the links between finite geometry and other areas. Many open problems in coding theory can be translated into a purely geometrical problem. Similarly, examples of (extremal) graphs often arise from finite geometry.
