Topology and Category Theory

Research Topics:

1. General Topology: Compactifications, generalized topological spaces, separation axioms, convergence, bitopological spaces, uniform spaces and metrization.

2. Pointfree Topology: Transferring of pointset notions to pointfree topology, sublocales, uniform frames, bilocales, metrization of frames, coproducts of frames and remainders of frames,

3. Pointfree Rings: Extending notions from general topology to pointfree rings.

4. Category Theory: Extending topological results using categorical notions, reflective subcategories and monads.
