Research interests: Complex analysis, especially Riemann surfaces, Kleinian groups and deformations of complex structures. Recent work (mostly joint with H.M. Farkas of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) involves applications of one variable theta functions to problems in analysis (uniformizations of surfaces), combinatorics (Ramanujan and related partitions) and number theory (coefficients of Fourier series of automorphic forms).

Professor Kra has retired from Stony Brook in 2004. He served as Founding Executive Director of Math for America during 2004 -- 2008.

During the fall of 2008 Professor Kra was a Visiting Scholar at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and a Visiting Professor at the Mathematics Department of the University of California at Berkeley.

During the spring of 2010 Professor Kra was a Visiting Professor at the Mathematics Department of Northwestern University.
