Research interests
My research deals with fundamental aspects of gauge theory, gravity and string theory. I am in particular interested in the quantummechanical description of nonperturbative objects of these theories, such as instantons, monopoles, black holes and Dbranes. My research is supported by the Laureate Award "Modularity in Quantum Field Theory and Gravity" from the Irish Research Council.
