Sang-hyun Kim works on geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology. His research interests include right-angled Artin groups, mapping class groups and word-hyperbolic groups.
With the collaborators, he developed topological and analytic methods to attack embeddability problems between groups of geometric nature. These groups encompass surface groups, manifold diffeomorphism groups and finitely generated groups of specifically prescribed smoothness.
