### Research

I work on the representation theory of reductive groups over finite rings, such as quotients of rings of integers of local fields. I am interested in a generalisation of Deligne-Lusztig theory to this setting, as well as purely algebraic (non-cohomological) constructions of representations, and their relations to supercuspidal representations of

*p*-adic groups.

I also work on representation zeta functions of nilpotent and compact

*p*-adic groups. In addition, I have done some work on group schemes over local rings, and commutators in matrix rings.

Together with Andrew Lobb I organised the British Mathematical Colloquium 2017 in Durham.
