I am interested in finding new formulations of quantum field theories and their observables. In particular, my research focuses on

  • mathematical structures of gauge and gravitational theories
  • novel presentations of physical observables
  • aspects of twistor theory and string theory
  • asymptotic properties of general relativity

All of my papers are available on the arXiv or inSpire
