My research interest is to understand and classify symmetries of manifolds, mostly surfaces and the circle, sometimes higher dimensional manifolds.

More specifically, I work on (one page research description)

  1. Homomorphisms between mapping class groups and braid groups

  2. Virtual property of Mapping Class groups

  3. Homomorphism between transformation groups such as Homeo(M)

  4. Topological dynamics: group action on manifolds
