My research area, sometimes called Noncommutative Geometry, involves C*-algebras, K-theory, index theory and KK-theory, and their applications and connections
to topology and dyamical systems. My current work is aimed at extending some of Connes' framework of Noncommutative Geometry to the Type III situation,
especially that of hyperbolic groups acting on their boundaries, using the relatively new concept of twisted spectral triples.

An introduction to C*-algebras and Noncommutative Geometry This book is designed to teach advanced undergraduates or graduate students the basic ideas of C*-algebras, K-theory,
Index Theory and Noncommutative Geometry. The book is a draft.
