On algebraic surfaces associated with line arrangements
For a line arrangement $\mathcal{A}$ in the complex projective
plane $\mathbb{P}^2$, we investigate the compactification $\overline{F}$
in $\mathbb{P}^3$ of the affine Milnor fiber $F$ and its minimal
resolution $\widetilde{F}$. We compute the Chern numbers of $\widetilde{F}$
in terms of the combinatorics of the line arrangement $\mathcal{A}$.
As applications of the computation of the Chern numbers, we show
that the minimal resolution is never a quotient of a ball; in
addition, we also prove that $\widetilde{F}$ is of general type
when the arrangement has only nodes or triple points as singularities;
finally, we compute all the Hodge numbers of some $\widetilde{F}$
by using some knowledge about the Milnor fiber monodromy of the
arrangement.

Surfaces with $p_g=q=2$, $K^2=6$, and Albanese Map of Degree $2$
We classify minimal surfaces of general type with $p_g=q=2$ and
$K^2=6$ whose Albanese map is a generically finite double cover.
We show that the corresponding moduli space is the disjoint union
of three generically smooth irreducible components
$\mathcal{M}_{Ia}$, $\mathcal{M}_{Ib}$, $\mathcal{M}_{II}$ of
dimension $4$, $4$, $3$, respectively.

Some Results on Surfaces of General Type
In this article we prove some new results on projective normality, normal
presentation and higher syzygies for surfaces of general type, not
necessarily smooth, embedded by adjoint linear series. Some of the
corollaries of more general results include: results on property $N_p$
associated to $K_S \otimes B^{\otimes n}$ where $B$ is basepoint free and
ample divisor with $B\otimes K^*$ {\it nef}, results for pluricanonical
linear systems and results giving effective bounds for adjoint linear series
associated to ample bundles. Examples in the last section show that the results
are optimal.
