Abstract: 

In this talk we explore some properties of the mean curvature flow with surgery and the level-set flow in negative curvature. We combine those with min-max theory to conclude that any quasi-Fuchsian and any hyperbolic 3-manifolds fibered over $S^1$ admits a foliation where every leave is minimal or has non-vanishing mean curvature. This is joint work with Marco Guaraco (Imperial College) and Vanderson Lima (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul).
