My research focuses on understanding geometry and gravity in the context of string theory and extra dimensions.

Link to my recent publications on SPIRES or INSPIRE.



I recently appeared on BBC newsnight with Jeremy Paxman to discuss a new proposal that black holes do not exist (arXiv:1406.1525). For a link to the program BBC listing click here.
