**Current research interest:**

Geometry: Minimal surfaces in R^3 --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.

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

Quantization (especially geometric quantizarion) of certain Integrable systems;
