 Complex algebraic compactifications of the moduli space of HermitianYangMills connections on a projective manifold, arXiv:1810.00025
(with Ben Sibley, Matei Toma, and Richard Wentworth)
In this paper we study the relationship between three compactifications of the moduli space of HermitianYangMills connections on a fixed Hermitian vector bundle over a projective algebraic manifold of arbitrary dimension. Via the DonaldsonUhlenbeckYau theorem, this space is analytically isomorphic to the moduli space of stable holomorphic vector bundles, and as such it admits an algebraic compactification by GiesekerMaruyama semistable torsionfree sheaves. A recent construction due to the first and third authors gives another compactification as a moduli space of slope semistable sheaves. In the present article, following fundamental work of Tian generalising the analysis of Uhlenbeck and Donaldson in complex dimension two, we define a gauge theoretic compactification by adding certain ideal connections at the boundary. Extending work of Jun Li in the case of bundles on algebraic surfaces, we exhibit comparison maps from the sheaf theoretic compactifications and prove their continuity. The continuity, together with a delicate analysis of the fibres of the map from the moduli space of slope semistable sheaves allows us to endow the gauge theoretic compactification with the structure of a complex analytic space.

(with Matei Toma)
Using an existence criterion for good moduli spaces of Artin stacks by AlperFedorchukSmyth we construct a proper moduli space of rank two sheaves with fixed Chern classes on a given complex projective manifold that are GiesekerMaruyamasemistable with respect to a fixed Kähler class.  Canonical complex extensions of Kähler manifolds, arXiv:1807.01223
(with Michael Lennox Wong)
Given a complex manifold X, any Kähler class defines an affine bundle over X, and any Kähler form in the given class defines a totally real embedding of X into this affine bundle. We formulate conditions under which the affine bundles arising this way are Stein and relate this question to other natural positivity conditions on the tangent bundle of X. For compact Kähler manifolds of nonnegative holomorphic bisectional curvature, we establish a close relation of this construction to adapted complex structures in the sense of LempertSzőke and to the existence question for good complexifications in the sense of Totaro. Moreover, we study projective manifolds for which the induced affine bundle is not just Stein but affine and prove that these must have big tangent bundle. In the course of our investigation, we also obtain a simpler proof of a result of Yang on manifolds having nonnegative holomorphic bisectional curvature and big tangent bundle.  Harmonic metrics on Higgs sheaves and the uniformization of varieties of general type, arXiv:1804.01266
(with Stefan Kebekus, Thomas Peternell, and Behrouz Taji)
We prove a criterion for the existence of harmonic metrics on Higgs bundles that are defined on smooth loci of klt varieties. As one application, we resolve the quasietale uniformisation problem for minimal varieties of general type to obtain a complete numerical characterisation of singular quotients of the unit ball by discrete, cocompact groups of automorphisms that act freely in codimension one. As a further application, we establish a nonabelian Hodge correspondence on smooth loci of klt varieties.  1rational singularities and quotients by reductive groups, arXiv:0901.3539
This preprint will not be submitted; the results follow easily from those in my later paper ''Rational singularities and quotients by holomorphic group actions'' that appeared in Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa; however, the preprint gives an independent and technically simpler proof in the algebraic case and avoids the technical difficulties encountered in the analytic setup.
