Current Research

My primary research interests are in Riemannian Geometry and Finsler Geometry. Roughly speaking, Riemannian metrics are quadratic metrics while Finsler metrics are metrics without quadratic restriction. In Finsler Geometry, there are several geometric quantities. The Riemann curvature and its mean (the Ricci curvature) are the natural extensions of the Riemann curvature and the Ricci curvature in Riemannian geometry. Other quantities are Cartan torsion, S-curvature and Landsberg curvature, etc. They all vanish when the metric is Riemannian. These non-Riemannian quantities interact with the Riemann/Ricci curvature. I investigate Finsler metrics of constant/scalar flag curvature and of isotropic Ricci curvature (Einstein metrics). Recently, I pay more attention to Ricci-flat metrics which have applications to Finslerian extension of general relativity.
