Research Interests:

Ross Stokke's research is in the areas of abstract harmonic analysis and functional analysis. More specifically, he studies locally compact groups, their unitary representations, and a variety of associated Banach algebras.

Dr. Stokke currently holds an NSERC Grant, which allows him to support students in research positions. Contact him to learn about research opportunities.
