Profile
Overview: Johnny Lim has joined Universiti Sains Malaysia in midNovember 2019. He was a Ph.D. student of Elder Professor Mathai Varghese. He is particularly interested in Ktheory and Index theory. His previous work involves the formulation of an analytic Pontryagin duality pairing between circledvalued Ktheory and Khomology, which describes the AharonovBohm in TypeIIB String theory in physics. He is currently working on possible generalizations in this direction, such as the equivariant case and the noncompact case, with goal to find a link to the projective index theory of MathaiMelroseSinger.
