Welcome to my website.  I am a mathematician  interested in interactions  between  Complex and Symplectic Geometry, Mathematical Physics, and Lie Theory. My current work focuses on the study of analytic aspects in moduli theory, and more concretely, the study of natural Kähler structures of moduli spaces of  vector bundles on Riemann surfaces, and 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.

I am currently a Principal Investigator under the DFG priority programme  SPP 2026 Geometry at Infinity.

Here you may find further details on my project entitled Wall-crossing and hyperkähler geometry of moduli spaces

(during the funding period 2017-2020 I was a member of the project Asymptotic geometry of the Higgs bundle moduli space).


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