Romyar Sharifi will focus on study of the arithmetic of Galois representations through the geometry and topology of higher-dimensional locally symmetric spaces. The prototypical example of this is a conjectural link between Steinberg symbols of cyclotomic units and modular symbols in the homology of modular curves modulo an Eisenstein ideal.
