This project consists of two types of geometric problems, algebraic geometry of moduli spaces and symplectic geometry of Lefschetz fibrations. The former will be carried out jointly with Marcos Jardim and the latter with Caio Negreiros. We have in mind specific and concrete questions in either side, as well as an explicit relation between the two that is predicted by mirror symmetry. (AU)
