In this thesis, I study pseudo-holomorphic curves in symplectisation of the unit cotangent bundle of a Riemann surface of genus greater than 1. The contact form and compatible almost complex structure are both constructed from a metric on the Riemann surface whose curvature is constant -1. I related the pseudo-holomorphic curve equation to harmonic map equations and a Cauchy-Riemann type equation perturbed with quadratic terms for functions on a punctured Riemann sphere. Then I prove a Theorem that gives one to one correspondence between solutions to the perturbed Cauchy-Riemann equation and finite energy pseudo-holomorphic curves.
