My main research interests...


Connections between theories of gravity and quantum field theories:

  • range of applicability of gauge/gravity dualities
  • what can they teach us about the behavior of strongly coupled systems -- and in particular their dynamics?
  • the `emergence' of gravity from gauge theory data

    Bridging the gap between string theory and cosmology:

  • cosmological imprints of generic ingredients of UV physics on low-energy effective theories
  • vacuum selection mechanisms
