Current research interest

Geometry: I study Minimal surfaces in R^3 which are idealized soap films. They are zero mean curvature surfaces -- I study the wonderful mathematics behind them. I also study Constant mean curvature surfaces in R^3 and Maximal surfaces in Lorentz-Minkowski 3-space.

Mathematical physics: Quantization (especially geometric quantization) of various moduli spaces of solutions of equations coming from physics; Quantization (especially geometric quantizarion) of certain Integrable systems;‚Äč
