Elliptic cohomology and its role in representation theory. This program is joint with Arun Ram and brings together previous work of M. Ando, I. Rosu, I. Grojnowski, E. Looijenga, and Ginzburg-Kapranov-Vasserot.

Categorified character theory.

Another interest of mine is still in Moonshine and the Monster. (See also Baby Monsters.)
