Research Interests:

My research interests are low-dimensional topology, symplectic topology and contact topology. In particular, I am working on classification problems of smooth and symplectic 4-manifolds, exotic smooth structures on small 4-manifolds and symplectic fillingsof contact 3-manifolds.

Selected Publications:
  1. Surgeries on the Trefoil and Symplectic Fillings, with John Etnyre

  2. Constructing Lefschetz Fibrations via Cyclic Group Actions I, with Anar Akhmedov, Advanced Mathematical Models & Applications, 2019, Vol.4, No 1, pp.15−50.

  3. New Exotic 4-Manifolds via Luttinger Surgery on Lefschetz Fibrations, with Anar Akhmedov, Int. J. Math., 2015, Vol.26, No 1, pp.179−200.
