Research Interests

I am a theoretical physicist working on aspects of quantum field theory and gravity that help reveal the mystery of the quantum theory of gravity. Some of the subjects that I have studied include

  • Gauge/Gravity duality; its origin, generalizations, and applications
  • Symmetries and algebraic structures in quantum field theories
  • Soluble (sectors of) models of quantum gravity


Apart from the above topics, I am also interested in exciting developments in other related fields such as the quantum information/quantum gravity program, the nonperturbative bootstrap program, black holes and compact objects (from both the high energy physics and the astrophysics points of view), and curious connections between high energy physics and condensed matter physics.
