My research work primarily concerns Complex and algebraic geometry, Diophantine approximation and Differential geometry. Before joining UH, I was
Benjamin Peirce Assistant Professor at Harvard University (19921995).
I also served as Assistant Professor (19901992) at the National University of Singapore
(my name was mentioned in
Milestones of
the Math. Dept., NUS (Notable Publications)).
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 (see Fellows) recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.
