Research


Our research is centered around holography (a.k.a. gauge/gravity duality or AdS/CFT) which relates strongly interacting quantum field theories to gravitational theories. In particular, gauge/gravity duality relates black holes to strongly coupled quantum systems with maximal quantum entanglement. The work includes the following research directions:


Strongly interacting quantum field theories and gauge/gravity duality

Quantum entanglement in QFT and its interpretation in dual gravity
