Research Interests

Riemannian Geometry and Complex Manifolds. The last 3 years have also seen research on projects supported by NSF grants (co-PIed with T. Peters and A. Russell) in computational geometry and toplogy.

  • REU

    Math Dept will begin its first REU program in the summer of 2005. I will serve as Director and the leader of a project. Prof McKenna will be another project leader. The detail of the program will be announced soon in a newly created REU website linked from www.math.uconn.edu.
