Research interests

My main research interest is Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy. A manifold of dimension n is a space that can be described locally using n coordinates, but which need not be flat. For instance, the usual notion of a surface corresponds to a 2-dimensional manifold. For a manifold to have special holonomy means that it carries some special "parallel" structure.

I am particularly interested in the two exceptional cases in the classification of Riemannian holonomy: 7-manifolds with holonomy G_2 and 8-manifolds with holonomy Spin(7). I study these objects using a combination of tools from differential and algebraic geometry, geometric measure theory and differential topology.
