Publications

I am interested in a range of topics in quantum field theory and string theory, including conformal field theory, supersymmetric indices, and three-dimensional gravity. One question I am particularly interested in is characterizing properties of conformal field theories holographically dual to semiclassical gravity via the AdS/CFT correspondence. For the specific case of AdS3/CFT2, there are many powerful techniques available, such as modular invariance and Virasoro symmetry. These can allow for interesting statements to be made about the dual two-dimensional conformal field theory.
