Research Interests:

My research interests are wide-ranging and I have strong interests within the fields of Analytic Number Theory, Algebraic Geometry, Differential Geometry, Functional Analysis, String Theory and M-Theory.

My current research examines special algebraic and geometric structures in dimensions 6 & 7.  This includes study of the h-principles of these structures, particularly in relation to Hitchin-type functionals and Riemannian/pseudo-Riemannian metrics of exceptional holonomy.
