I have recently moved to KITP , but will be visitor at Caltech one day a week.
Even more recently, I have moved to King's College London for a faculty position, but will be visitor at Caltech for several weeks per year.
I am a John A. McCone Postdoctoral Scholar in Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology.
Before joining the string theory group at Caltech I spent three years as a postdoc at the
II. Institute for Theoretical Physics
of the University of Hamburg/DESY in Germany, where I went after completing
my PhD at DAMTP, Cambridge, UK. Advisors: Prof Matthias R Gaberdiel (ETH, Zurich) and Prof Peter
Goddard (IAS, Princeton).
Gauge/string theory dualities, in particular integrability in the AdS/CFT correspondence
SUSY breaking and phenomenology of F-theory GUTs
Other topics which I have worked on in the past are generalized complex geometries and compactifications with non-trivial NSNS flux.
