I am interested in measured and asymptotic group theory, in particular spectral theory of graphs and groups, Benjamini-Schramm convergence, graph polynomials, stochastic processes on groups, rank gradient, invariant random subgroups, homology growth, sofic entropy, cellular automata and locally symmetric spaces.

MTA "Lendület" Research Group
Starting in 2012, I am leading the MTA "Lendület" Groups and Graphs Research Group. Members: Miklós Abért, Péter Csikvári, Endre Csóka, Gábor Elek, Péter Frenkel, Tamás Hubai, Gábor Kun, Gábor Lippner, Ádám Timár and Endre Szabó.
This is a list of questions that I am interested in [PDF]. Many of them belong to other people (when I think I know the source, I name it) and some are purely speculative. It may make sense to contact me before putting a lot of work in one of them as it may have been solved (last update: Nov 2, 2010). Good luck with them.
