Differential geometry and geometric analysis.

  • manifolds with exceptional holonomy especially manifolds with G2 holonomy.
  • Riemannian collapse and manifolds with special and exceptional holonomy.
  • calibrated geometries, particularly associative submanifolds of compact manifolds with G2 holonomy and singularities of special Lagrangian submanifolds.
  • geometric PDE gluing constructions of calibrated submanifolds.
  • applications of Geometric Measure Theory to calibrated geometry.
  • regularity results for calibrated currents.
  • differential geometric applications of integrable systems techniques.

Evolution equations from mathematical physics.

  • Solitons and breathers in spatially discrete models.
  • Adiabatic/slow-motion limits of geometric nonlinear wave equations, particularly wave maps.
