Harmonic map flow for almost-holomorphic maps

I'll discuss recent work on removability of finite-time singularities for 2D harmonic map flow with almost-holomorphic initial data (in the energy sense). This is relevant to a conjecture of Topping. Time permitting, I'll also discuss uniqueness of subsequential limits at infinite time.
