Mathematical Sciences


My general interest is the geometry and topology of aspherical spaces. I have done some work in the study of the relationship between exotic structures and (negative, non-positive) curvature, and its applications to the limitations of PDE methods in geometry. Other interests: geometric group theory, K-theory, mechanics.
