Note for prospective PhD students (11/2021): Please contact me only if you have already applied and been accepted to UW. I am not taking on new students at this time.

My research is broadly in string theory and quantum field theory, with a particular emphasis on the intersection of these fields with modern mathematics. Currently, a main focus is on holographic correspondences in asymptotically anti de Sitter and flat spacetimes, and their connections to a mathematical notion from homological algebra called Koszul duality. I am also interested in field theoretic studies of condensed matter systems. 

Prior to coming to the University of Washington, I was a Member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ and a Sherman Fairchild Postdoctoral Fellow at Caltech.
