Research interests

My research interests lie in analytic number theory and its interactions with harmonic analysis. I am particularly interested in applying analytic methods to solve diophantine problems.

One main theme of my current research concerns the generalized Baker-Schmidt problem in metric diophantine approximation on manifolds, which is a far-reaching generalization of the classical zero-one law of Khintchine. These problems turn out to be closely related to counting rational points in a thin neighborhood of a manifold, a question of fundamental importance on its own right.
