I am interested in unifying General Relativity (gravity) with the other forces of nature and quantum mechanics. As such, I work on string and M-theory, our best candidates for such a theory of quantum gravity. Moreover, I am interested in using string and M-theory to better understand various aspects of quantum field theories, which describe the fundamental interactions of nature, such as electromagnetism and the strong nuclear force. More details can be found on my personal website.
