Geometry of Null Sets 
We show how product decompositions of measures can detect directionality in sets. In order to show this we prove that sets of small measure are always contained in a "small" number of Lipschitz surfaces. We also discuss the higher codimensional versions of our statements. This is a joint work with Peter Jones.

Which Powers Of A Holomorphic Function Are Integrable? 
Let f = f(z_{1}, . . . , z_{n}) be a holomorphic function defined on an open subset P ∈ U ⊂ C^{n}. The log canonical threshold of f at P is the largest s ∈ R such that f^{s} is locally integrable at P. This invariant gives a sophisticated measure of the singularities of the set defined by the zero locus of f which is of importance in a variety of contexts (such as the minimal model program and the existence of KählerEinstein metrics in the negatively curved case). In this talk we will discuss recent results on the remarkable structure enjoyed by these invariants.
