My research focuses on various aspects of Symmetry in Mathematics and Physics. Recently, I have been exploring fascinating links between the Langlands Program and dualities in Quantum Physics.
Here are the videos of my lectures "An overview of the geometric Langlands Program" (at the Fields Medal Symposium, Toronto, 2012) and "What Do Fermat's Last Theorem and Electro-magnetic Duality Have in Common?" (at KITP, Santa Barbara, 2011) in which these topics are reviewed.
And here is a video summary of my Seminaire Bourbaki on this subject.
I spent the Spring semester of 2012 at Columbia University as the Samuel Eilenberg Visiting Professor, giving a series of lectures The Langlands Program and Quantum Field Theory.
Videos of these lectures are available here.

As part of this project, I co-organized a Mini-Program "Gauge Theory and Langlands Duality" and a Conference "Dualities in Physics and Mathematics" at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) in Santa Barbara in 2008 and 2009. The talks are available online here and here.
The next conference in this series was "Langlands-Type Dualities in Quantum Field Theory", held at KITP in August 2010. Here is the video of my opening lecture. All talks are available here.
The most recent Program at KITP, "Nonperturbative Effects and Dualities in QFT and Integrable Systems", ran from July 5 to August 26, 2011.
