Specialization: Complex Analysis

Research Interest: Geometric Function Theory

We work on problems in the theory of univalent functions, special functions, quasiconformal mappings, and hyperbolic-type geometry. In particular, we aim

  • to extend theory of hyperbolic-type geometry associated with quasiconformal mappings and domains having geometric characterizations;
  • to investigate properties of conformal mappings associated with metrics bilipschitz equivalent to the hyperbolic metric;
  • to find necessary and sufficient conditions for certain analytic functions in terms of coefficient estimates, pre-Schwarzian and Schwarzian derivatives;
  • to study analytic and geometric properties of partial sums, arc length, area, and radius problems for univalent functions;
  • to visualize mapping properties of basic hypergeometric functions using techniques from geometric function theory.
