Research Interests
I am interested in classifying complex manifolds (in particular, projective manifolds) by means of the curvature of metrics that reside on them. I find Kobayashi hyperbolic manifolds (defined, for compact complex manifolds, by the nonexistence of holomorphic maps from the complex line into them) particular fascinating. A folklore generalisation of a conjecture made by Kobayashi I find particularly enchanting: A compact Kobayashi hyperbolic manifold is projective and canonically polarised. Links to the existence of rational curves on CalabiYau manifolds and moduli theory are of notable interest. The 'elliptic counterparts' of hyperbolic manifolds, namely Oka manifolds and Special manifolds are tremendously exciting.
