**Research**

**Areas of Interest: **Number theory, automorphic and modular forms, representation theory, arithmetic geometry and Arakelov theory

**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. Click here for a more detailed description of my research. My research is supported by NSF-grants DMS-0305448 and DMS-0701228.
