Research Interests

From July 31 2014 to July 31 2015 I have worked on two general topics:
the study of mathematical properties and classification of
supersymmetric quantum field theories in various dimensions
and the study of mathematical aspects of quantum field theory which
arise in high energy theory and condensed matter physics.
