I am Professor of Mathematics at the University of Houston. Before joining UH, I was
Benjamin Peirce Assistant Professor at Harvard University
(Andrew Wiles and the Fileds Medalist Shigefumi Mori were previously the Benjamin Peirce
Assistant Professor at Harvard, see

I also served as Assistant Professor (20002002) at the National University of Singapore
(my name was mentioned in
Milestones of
the Math. Dept., NUS (Notable Publications)).
My research work primarily concerns Complex and algebraic geometry, Diophantine approximation and Differential geometry. In 1999, I received the University of Houston Research and Scholarship Excellence Award
. In 2018, I was elected as
Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.
