2011 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Studies (First Year Category).
2012 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Studies (Second Year Category).

2013 Selected to participate in the inaugural Heidelberg Laureate Forum: Abel-, Fields- and Turing-Laureates Meet the Next Generation, Heidelberg, Germany, September 2013.
2014 Selected to participate in and to organise a workshop Independence results in Mathematics at the second Heidelberg Laureate Forum: Abel-, Fields- and Turing-Laureates Meet the Next Generation, Heidelberg, Germany, September 2014.

I am a reviewer for Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt MATH.

My research interests include:

C*-algebras and their classification. Set theory in operator algebras;
Banach space theory and, in particular, Banach spaces of continuous functions;
Operator ideals and, in general, left/right/two-sided ideals in Banach algebras;
Set-theoretic and Boolean approach to functional analysis.
