Introduction
My research is about topological quantum field theory (TQFT), quantum geometry of moduli spaces and Chern-Simons theory.

In this paper we follow the constructions of Turaev's book [Tu] closely, but with small modifications, to construct of a modular functor, in the sense of Kevin Walker, from any modular tensor category. We further show that this modular functor has duality and if the modular tensor category category is Hermitian or unitary, then the resulting modula...

In this paper we engage in a general study of the asymptotic expansion of the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants of mapping tori of surface mapping class group elements. We use the geometric construction of the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev TQFT via the geometric quantization of moduli spaces of flat connections on surfaces. We identify assumptions o...

For a Seifert fibered homology sphere we show that the q-series Z-hat invariant introduced by Gukov, Pei, Putrov and Vafa is a resummation of the Ohtsuki serie. We show that for every even level k there exists a full asymptotic expansion of Z-hat for q tending to a certain k'th root of unity and in particular that the limit exists and is equal to t...

We motivate and define the zed-hat invariant of a plumbed 3-manifold constructed by Gukov, Pei, Putrov and Vafa. This invariant is a power series with integer coefficients, which is convergent inside the unit disc and have quantum modularity properties. We compute the zed-hat invariant for all Seifert fibered homology spheres via resurgence of the...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis is about the topological quantum field theory (TQFT) invented by Reshetikhin- Turaev and motivated by Atiyah’s axioms, and Witten’s work on quantum Chern-Simons theory and the Jones polynomial. The main theme is the connection between this TQFT and Chern-Simons theory. This thesis contains the results which were obtained during my PhD s...

Article
For a Seifert fibered homology sphere X we show that the q-series invariant introduced by Gukov, Pei, Putrov and Vafa, is a resummation of the Ohtsuki series. We show that for ˆ every even natural number k there exists a full asymptotic expansion of this q-series for q tending to a certain k'th root of unity and in particular that the limit exists...
