Curriculum Vitae

The current focus of my research is the study of non-perturbative phenomena in quantum field theory and gravity through the lens of quantum information theory.

In the past, I have worked on

  1. Algebraic methods in quantum field theory: Modular theory and its applications
  2. Eigenstate Thermalization hypothesis in quantum field theory
  3. The emergence of space in holography
  4. Fast scrambling and black holes
  5. Quantum gravity in three dimensional spacetimes
