I work with generalized complex structures and related objects. I'm interested in both topological questions about those and their relation to string theory. I have been working with Marco Gualtieri on many aspects of this area and have also collaborated with Henrique Bursztyn.
I am also interested in symplectic topology and have collaborated with Marisa Fernandez and Vicente Munoz in this area.
Below is a list of my written work with links to versions of the papers. You can also find most of my publications on the ArXiv or on Google scholar. For something closer to “proper” citation statistics, see the Citation Impact Discerning Self-citations (CIDS) page (currently broken).
