Research Interests

I work on **infinite groups** and **3-manifolds. **Specifically, my
interests include:

1) **Geometric Group Theory**
including the following subjects:

Word Hyperbolic Groups, CAT(0) Groups, Automatic
Groups.

2)** Coherent Groups** .A group *G* is coherent, if every finitely generated
subgroup of *G* is finitely presented.

3)** Residual Finiteness** and **Subgroup Separability**.

A group *G* is residually finite, if the trivial subgroup is the
intersection of finite index subgroups of *G*.

*
G*
is subgroup separable, if __every__ finitely generated subgroup is the
intersection of finite index subgroups of *G*.

4)** 3-Manifolds. **My research in 3-manifolds has
focused on coherence and subgroup separability.

Some of my colleagues in Montreal with related interests are

Mikael
Pichot who studies analytic aspects of infinite
groups and

Steven Boyer
who is a 3-manifold theorist.
