My research is centered around holography
(a.k.a. gauge/gravity duality or AdS/CFT) which relates strongly interacting
quantum field theories to gravitational theories.
The work includes the following research directions:
- Conformal field theories and holography.
- Quantum information and holography.
- Gravitational description of strongly coupled quantum systems.
My work is supported by the Irish Research Council
Consolidator Laureate award "Gauge/gravity duality: origin and applications".
Expressions of interest are welcome from PhD and postdoc candidates
for positions supported by external funding agencies,
such as the Irish Research Council (IRC postgraduate and postdoctoral fellowships) and the European Commission
(Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowships).
It is essential to make contact significantly ahead of the deadlines, which
are usually in September-October.
