Riemannian Geometry (Ricci flow, Riemannian functionals)
Research Focus
My research interests lie primarily in differential geometry and geometric analysis. In particular, I am interested in studying Riemannian functionals, geometric flows and their applications in geometry and topology. I have studied rigidity, stability and local minimizing properties of L^p norm of Riemannian curvature tensor at symmetric spaces. Recently I am interested in topology of non-compact manifolds admitting a complete metric with positive scalar curvature.
