My work now centres on the application of tools from analysis and the theory of partial differential equations to problems in geometry and mathematical physics. I am particularly interested in problems related to low-regularity geometrical structures. I also have long-term interests in mathematical relativity, spectral theory and the theory of integrable systems.
