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 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)
