Research

My research interests

are nonsmooth. I am fascinated by connections between analytic concepts – such as Sobolev spaces, metric currents and second order calculus for spaces with lower Ricci curvature bounds (RCD spaces) – and topological and geometric ones, for example homology or cohomology groups, isoperimetric inequalities and so on. My current research emphasis roughly divides into

  • homology and metric currents;
  • existence and regularity of energy minima in homotopy classes of Sobolev maps;
  • spaces with curvature bounds: Alexandrov and RCD-spaces; their analytic, geometric and topological properties, and also
  • quasiregular and BLD-maps between nonsmooth metric spaces.
