Research interests: Gauge Theory, Geometric Analysis, Algebraic Geometry

  More specifically, my current research interests are around the Vafa-Witten equations and the Kapustin-Witten ones on four-manifolds. They originated in an attractive theory called N=4 super (!) Yang-Mills 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 higher-dimensional gauge theories such as the Donaldson-Thomas invariants and Spin(7)-instantons. Now I'm working on these from both algebraic and analytic aspects. (article in Case Studies)
