**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.
