Research Interests

Together with Kobi Kremnizer (Oxford, UK), we are constructing chiral algebras using Beilinson-Drinfeld Grassmannians in differential geometry. Our approach is based on the infinitesimal theory in smooth geometry, that we have recently discovered ("Beyond perturbation 1: de Rham spaces"). It allows us to systematically go beyond perturbation, and in particular to construct line bundles on affine Grassmannians having the factorization property. To transport these line bundles to the Ran space we have developed the theory of "Quasi-coherent sheaves in differential geometry".

Previously I was working with D.Joyce, constructing moduli of Spin(7) instantons using shifted sympectic forms on moduli spaces of sheaves on Calabi-Yau four-folds.
