my picture


I am an associate professor at Nagoya University.

My mathematical interests include geometric analysis, gauge theory, differential geometry, and dynamical systems. I have worked on topics such as Donaldson theory on non-compact $4$-manifolds, Seiberg-Witten theory, scalar curvature, and mean dimension. I also have a side interest in the application of $K$-theory to topological insulators. \[ \begin{cases} D_A \Phi = 0 \\ \sqrt{8} iF_A^+ = -\beta(|\sigma(\Phi)|) \left[ \left( \frac{2}{3} R_g + 2w_g \right) + \epsilon \right]_+ \frac{\sigma(\Phi)}{|\sigma(\Phi)|} \end{cases} \]

I received my PhD from University of Tokyo in 2010, supervised by Professor Mikio Furuta. After that I was a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto, and an assistant professor at Osaka, before moving to Nagoya in 2016. Here is a CV.
