I’m a professor of physics at Harvard University. My general research interests are string theory, quantum field theory, and mathematical physics. The topics I am currently studying include:
•supersymmetry constraints on the dynamics of gauge theory and string theory
•matrix quantum mechanics
•conformal field theories
•integrable models
Topics I have worked on in the past, temporarily shelved (you never know, I might return to these any time):
•three-dimensional quantum gravity
•Chern-Simons-matter theories
•higher spin gravity
•BPS states and black holes in string theory
•Topological strings and enumerative geometry
I have a keen interest in various topics in pure mathematics (not necessarily connected to physics).
