Research Interests
Algebraic Geometry, Representation Theory.
I am interested in the interface between representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. One focus of my current research is a new approach, joint with David Nadler to the representation theory of real and complex Lie groups built from a combination of the geometric Langlands program, topological field theory and derived algebraic geometry.Another program I am working on, joint with Tom Nevins, applies noncommutative geometry, in particular the geometry of differential operators, to questions concerning integrable systems. I am also interested in the applications of algebraic structures coming from physics (such as conformal field theory and vertex algebras) to the geometry of moduli spaces. This is the subject of my work with my advisor Edward Frenkel; check out our book Vertex Algebras and Algebraic Curves.
