**Research Abstract**

My research seeks to uncover and understand the geometrical and topological data that characterize manifolds. My current work has focused on developing some novel cohomologies of differential forms as new tools for analyzing symplectic manifolds. I am also interested in applications of geometrical structures in theoretical physics.
