On sabbatical leave


My interest in mathematics may be summarized as the study of smooth/symplectic topology in dimension four and symplectic topology in dimension six. In the long run I hope to understand symplectic structures on a smooth 6-manifold by using topological methods like surgeries. The Seiberg-Witten invariants of 4-manifolds and the count of J-holomorphic curves in 6-manifolds are the basic tools to get information about these structures. A sample problem about symplectic 6-manifolds is here.
A curriculum vitae may be found here.
