Research

Areas of Interest: Number theory, automorphic and modular forms, representation theory, cohomology of arithmetic groups


Research Topics: I am interested in cohomology classes of arithmetic quotients of orthogonal and unitary symmetric spaces which arise from certain naturally embedded submanifolds.  Furthermore, I am also interested in the corresponding arithmetic situation, when these submanifolds occur as the complex points of certain cycles in Shimura varieties of this type. I study these cycles by realizing them via the theta correspondence as Fourier coefficients of Siegel and Hermitian modular forms.
