My research interest is in algebraic geometry. More specifically, I am interested in the birational geometry of algebraic varieties. Currently I  am interested in the log abundance conjecture in characteristic 0 and p>0, BAB conjecture for Fano varieties in char p>0, and the existence of flips and minimal model for higher dimensional (>3) varieties in char p>0.


 I am currently an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Los Angeles.
