Research Interests

According to MathSciNet, my research interests are

  • Differential geometry,
  • Global analysis, analysis on manifolds,
  • Partial differential equations. 

Currently, I am focussing on geometric and global analysis on graphs with unbounded geometry. Besides this, I am also working on properties of spaces with Ricci curvature bounds.
