Research Interests: Theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology, string theory, supergravity, quantum field theory, and holography

Education: PhD, University of Michigan

I completed my PhD at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2012.  After that, I went on to a joint postdoctoral position at the University of Southern California and The Institut de Physique Théorique at Saclay in France.  In 2015, I joined the University of California, San Diego particle theory group as a UC President's postdoctoral fellow.  In January 2017, I will be Joining Johns Hopkins Particle theory group as an assistant professor in physics.  

My general research interest is in theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology.  In my research I explore the relations between quantum field theories, string theory and gravity via the framework of holography.  I am also interested in fundamental aspect of black holes and their role in nature.  My research work is part of a larger research program in high-energy physics whose main goal is to understand a quantum theory of gravity.
