Shai Evra’s current research concerns symmetric spaces of arithmetic groups and their combinatoric, geometric, and topological structure. A main goal is proving that these objects display expander-like properties. In order to study such objects, he employs results from representation and number theory (e.g. Ramanujan and Langlands conjectures).
