Research Interests:

My main area of research interest is in the field of String theory, especially its applications to Quantum Field Theory and Quantum Gravity. Much of my work has focused on using the AdS/CFT correspondence both to learn new lessons about quantum gravity and to model strongly interacting quantum field dynamics.
