My main research area is algebraic geometry and I am also interested in related questions in number theory, complex geometry and commutative algebra.

If you want to know what algebraic geometry is, see my article "What is Algebraic Geometry?" in

*The Princeton Companion to Mathematics*, edited by Timothy Gowers.
