  Research Interests and achievement
Updated on September 3, 2006
String theory is a prime candidate for a consistent theory of quantum gravity. It holds the promise to address some of the deepest questions of theoretical physics, such as the origin and the structure of space-time. However our current understanding of string theory is limited and it is needed to be improved and completed. I am interested in the underlying symmetry principles of string theory, and to gain control of string theory in its non-perturbative regime.
