Research Interests

My current researches focus on using conformal field theory to understand quantum gravity through the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular, I am interested in exploring the deep underlying origin of the correspondence and its connection to novel aspects of quantum field theories, such as entanglement structures and chaotic properties.  
In the past, I have also been interested in understanding non-relativistic quantum field theories; application of supersymmetric mirror symmetry to understand particle-vortex duality in three dimensions; as well as AdS/CMT.
