- Professional Activities
Differential geometry, gauge theory and mathematics physics. Particularly the study of moduli spaces of geometric structures on manifolds such as:
- Higgs bundle moduli spaces and character varieties.
- Gauge theoretical moduli spaces in various dimensions, such as the moduli space of contact instantons on contact 5-manifolds and gauge theory on foliated spaces.
Mathematical physics, particularly geometric aspects of quantum field theory and string theory including:
- Generalised geometry, T-duality and twisted K-theory.
