I am a theoretical physicist, currently a Professor in the Department of Physics at UC Davis and a founding member of the Center for Quantum Mathematics and Physics (QMAP).

Research interests

My research interests lie mainly in areas of string theory and quantum gravity.  You can read more about the scientific vision in a broader context at our QMAP pages, here.
Much of my past work has been set in the context of the gauge/gravity duality and black holes.

You can find most of my papers using the inSPIRE HEP search engine, in the following publication list.
