Research interests

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