Research Interests

I have been studying non-equilibrium physics and quantum gravity in terms of quantum entanglement:

We have proposed how to construct geometry in gravity dual of entanglement structure.

We have been studying the relation between Einstein eq. and constraint for entanglement entropy.

We have been studying thermal properties of entanglement entropy.

We have been studying how scrambling effect affects structure of entanglement.

Currently, I am strongly interested in properties of theories with strong scrambling effect in low energy limit. Also, I am strongly interested in the physics beyond AdS/CFT correspondence.
