Research interests: Gauge Theory, Geometric Analysis, Algebraic Geometry
More specifically, my current research interests are around the VafaWitten equations and the KapustinWitten ones on fourmanifolds. They originated in an attractive theory called N=4 super (!) YangMills theory in (Theoretical) Particle Physics, or more broadly in Superstring Theory. I've reached these objects with huge surprise and excitement from mathematical studies in higherdimensional gauge theories such as the DonaldsonThomas invariants and Spin(7)instantons. Now I'm working on these from both algebraic and analytic aspects.
