Research Interests: Some of these interests are linked by various themes including that of  Grothendieck's sketched programmes on Pursuing Stacks and his Esquisse d'un programme. These were described in part in the research programmes: Algebraic homotopy, Galois theory and Descent (joint with Coimbra, Portugal and the Georgian Academy of Sciences) and Descent Theory and its Higher Dimensional Analogues
