## Research

Escher's current work lies in the interaction between algebraic topology and differential geometry, in particular the use of surgery theory to classify spaces of positive sectional curvature. Her previous work is connected to the field of minimal submanifolds; in particular existence and uniqueness questions of minimal isometric immersions of spherical space forms into spheres.
