Research focus

E. Barreiro’s research predominantly focuses on algebraic structures, particularly Lie algebras and their various generalizations, including Lie superalgebras, Leibniz bialgebras, and Poisson algebras. This includes the study of quadratic Lie superalgebras, symplectic structures, and the classification of nilpotent algebras. Their work often intersects with geometric and physical applications, exploring the algebraic underpinnings of symmetries and their associated transformations. Additionally, Barreiro investigates homogeneous and antiassociative quasialgebras, providing a deeper understanding of algebraic operations and mappings within these complex structures.
