Hello! I like string theory, (super)gravity, and mathematical physics. Most recently I've been thinking about

  • Twistor theory, including twistors for AdS physics
  • U-duality in supergravity and on the worldvolume
  • Topological field theories

See my INSPIRE page for an up-to-date list of papers.
