Demetre P Kazaras, Phillip Griffiths Assistant Research Professor
I study the scalar curvature of Riemannian manifolds and questions in General Relativity. The tools involved include geometric PDE, minimal surfaces, spinors, and algebraic topology. Please note: Demetre has left the Mathematics department at Duke University; some info here might not be up to date.  Contact Info:
