Research interests

I am a theoretical physicist working in several areas related to string theory.

In the past I have been interested in (non-rational) conformal field theories, string theory in curved space-times, tachyon dynamics, gauge theory dualities from brane dynamics and five-brane holography.

Recently, I have focused my attention on formal aspects of string compactifications, such as heterotic compactifications with torsion and non-geometric compactifications, including connections with mathematics.
