Current research interest:

Geometry:  I study Minimal surfaces in R^3 which are idealized soap films. They are zero mean curvature surfaces -- I study the wonderful mathematics behind them. I also study Constant mean curvature surfaces in R^3 and Maximal surfaces in Lorentz-Minkowski 3-space, Born-Infeld solitons and Time-like Minimal surfaces.

Mathematical physics: Quantization: Berezin quantization, Deformation quantization, Geometric Quantization; Coherent and Squeezed states.

Geometric Quantization (especially geometric quantization) of various moduli spaces of solutions of equations coming from physics;

Quantization (especially geometric quantization) of certain Integrable systems.
