Singularities play an important role in the Minimal Model Program (MMP), which aims to birationally classify algebraic varieties. In this talk, I will introduce main conjectures of singularities in MMP, as well as some recent progress in the direction, including a joint work with Caucher Birkar for Shokurov's Conjecture.
