    Research overview

    I am currently engaged in a PhD project concerning finite groups.

    Questions of interest:

    • how many square roots can a group element have?
    • how many cubed roots?
    • more generally, for a prime number p, how many pth roots?
    • what is the structure of the squaring digraph of a finite group?
