Research Interest

My research involves various geometric problems in mathematical physics, especially those concerning mirror symmetry. I am also interested in other problems in string theory, e.g. vertex operator algebras and supersymmetry. The following are some areas that I have done some work:

  • Applications of equivariant cohomology and localization techniques.
  • Moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces and Hodge integrals
  • Frobenius manifolds and topological field theory
  • Vertex algebras from geometric objects
  • Study of singular varieties by super differential geometry
  • Homotopical mirror symmetry
  • Click here for a list of my publications and preprints.
