Aleksandr Berdnikov is interested in studying the behavior of metric complexity of topological objects (say, what Lipschitz constant one needs to realize a given homotopy class, or null-homotope a given mapping, etc., asymptotically speaking). At IAS, Berdnikov's intent is to focus on the h-principles that the special year program lays out.
