I study the representation theory of algebraic structures that arise in two-dimensional conformal quantum field theories, especially vertex operator algebras, affine Lie (super)algebras, and the Virasoro Lie algebra. More specifically, I am interested in the existence, properties, and structure of braided tensor categories of modules for these algebras.
