Associate Professor of Physics
Quantum field theory, quantum gravity, and string theory, and their applications to particle physics and cosmology.
I am interested in a broad range of issues surrounding cosmology, particle physics, and quantum gravity, and their interactions with mathematics and condensed matter physics.
My current focus is on the dynamics of spacetime in string theory.
