My research interests include:

  • Banach algebras

  • Fredholm theory

  • Spectral theory in ordered Banach algebras

Much of my work has been with Sonja Mouton, on investigating the connections between Fredholm theory and positivity in general ordered Banach algebras. This study is rich with many open questions that are often easy to state but not so easy to settle. :-)
