Most of my research is on gravitational aspects of string theory, in particular the AdS/CFT correspondence. The ultimate goal of this research is to understand quantum gravity, including quantum properties of black holes, in a mathematically well-defined setting.

Why strings?   (a short non-technical account of my research interests)

Strings, gauge theory and gravity   (a colloquium I gave a few years ago)

Gauge - gravity duality in everyday life   (a more recent colloquium)

My publication list, available from the inSPIRE database

My on-line publications, available from the e-print archive in the subject areas hep-th, hep-ph, gr-qc


I've taught a variety of undergrad physics courses at Lehman: conceptual physics, college physics, modern physics, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics. I've also taught quantum field theory and particle physics at the CUNY grad center.

The particle physics course resulted in a set of lecture notes: Introduction to high energy physics (235 pages, PDF format, 2.2MB)


This year I'm on sabbatical!
