nonrelativistic quantum mechanics
Areas of expertise Materials Science: liquid crystals, particularly in confined polyhedral geometries; applications to displays.

Partial Differential Equations: energy and regularity of S^2-valued harmonic maps in polyhedral domains.

Quantum chaos: topological aspects, including Maslov indices and global topology of integrable systems. I am also interested in the spin-statistics relation in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics.
