I study geometric analysis and PDEs. I am most interested in mean curvature flow, specifically in the classification and rigidity of self-shrinking and self-translating solitons of mean curvature flow. More generally, I am interested in minimal or constant mean curvature submanifolds, the Isoperimetric Problem in Euclidean and Gaussian spaces, and related topics in geometric analysis.
