Research Topics

Variational problems, QFT, Symmetries and applications:
I am working on a geometric description of supersymmetric sigma models. This involves extending concepts from differential and algebraic geometry to supergeometry and searching to understand their applications in particle physics. In particular, I am concentrating on a super analogon of harmonic maps on Riemann surfaces and supergravity in two dimensions (so-called super Riemann surfaces).
