Research Interests:

Analytic torsion, Quillen metrics, and their applications to automorphic forms and moduli spacesCurrent Researches:

(1) Construction of invariant for varieties of Calabi-Yau type by using analytic torsion

(2) Determination of the analytic torsion invariant as an explicit function on the moduli space

(3) Branched covering and Quillen metrics

(4) Determination of the boundary behavior of analytic torsion

(5) An algebraic expression for the Borcherds Phi-functionSelected Publications:
