Research interests

I am interested in the interaction of geometry, PDEs and topology, and particularly in geometric flows and their applications. Geometric flows (such as Ricci flow, mean curvature flow, inverse mean curvature flow...) are extremely powerful tools which have been used to solve hard open conjectures such as the Poincaré conjecture and have been used to prove important results such as the differentiable sphere theorem and the Penrose inequality. I am currently working on the study and application of flows in a diverse range of contexts, including in Riemannian, Lorentzian, Lagrangian and G_2 geometries.
