Welcome to my website.  I am a mathematician  interested in interactions  between  Complex and Symplectic Geometry,  and Mathematical Physics. My current work focuses on the  study of the  natural Kähler structures of moduli spaces of  vector bundles on Riemann surfaces, and on the way they may be reconstructed in terms of families of field theories. I am keen to explore any situation where these areas may benefit from tools and techniques of the others.


Research interests
Complex analytic geometry of moduli spaces, geometry and topology of gauge field theories, integrable systems.
