Current research
Given a Heegaard diagram of a 3-manifold, one can produce a symplectic manifold and a Lagrangian pair from it. Ozsváth and Szabó proved that the Lagrangian intersection Floer homology of the Lagrangian pair is independent of the choice of the Heegaard diagram, which turns out to be a topological invariant of the given 3-manifold. Link Floer homology was also defined later, which is a topological invariant of a link. Recently my research focuses on giving a definition of the Heegaard Floer homology for an embedded graph in a 3-manifold.
