I am interested in quantum gravity and field theory. My work has focused on holography, quantum chaos, the connection between gravity and Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev models, near-extremal black holes, and conformal field theory more broadly. My current research is on quantum aspects of black hole physics and understanding what type of quantum systems give rise to an emergent gravitational description, building up on examples extracted from String Theory.

Before joining the University of Washington, I was a Member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and a Fundamental Physics Fellow at UC Santa Barbara. I got my PhD at Princeton University under the supervision of Herman Verlinde, and did my undergraduate studies at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
