I am a member of the theoretical physics group. My research focuses on fundamental aspects of gravity, black holes and quantum field theory. I am particularly interested in understanding space-time and gravitation at the smallest and largest scales, and also how string theory combines Einstein's theory of gravity with quantum mechanics.
