I am a pure Mahematician, specialized in algebraic geometry. I am an associate professor of pure mathematics at the Institut for Matematik, formerly the Center for Quantum Geometry of Moduli spaces at Aarhus University, as well as a senior member at Harvard University CMSA, a visiting scholar in Harvard University Physics department, and a visiting professor at Institute for the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at University of Miami. During the past 5 years I have been a senior personnel at Simons Collaboration Program for Homological Mirror Symmetry at Harvard University Center for Mathematical Sciences and Applications (CMSA), as well as Harvard Physics department (2020-2021). My work is mainly focused on Gromov Witten theory, Donaldson Thomas theory, Calabi-Yau geometries, and mathematical aspects of String theory. I study geometry of moduli spaces of sheaves and curves on Calabi Yau spaces, some of which arise in the study of mathematics of string theory. In my research at I have worked on understanding dualities between geometry of such moduli spaces over complex varieties of dimension 2,3,4 and currently I am working on extension of these projects from derived geometry and geometric representation theory point of view. In joint work with Shing-Tung Yau (Harvard Math, Harvard CMSA, and Harvard Physics departments), Cody Long (Harvard Physics), and Cumrun Vafa (Harvard Math and Physics departments) I worked on geometry moduli spaces of sheaves with non-homolomorphic support and their associated non-BPS (non-holomorphic) counting invariants. In 2019 I recieved IRFD "Research Leader" grant (approx $1M) on my project "Embedded surfaces, dualities and quantum number theory". The project has additionally been co-financed by Harvard University CMSA (Approx total. $400K). **Detail of IRFD "Research Leader" grant ($1M).**
