AFFILIATIONS

University of Waterloo

PhD students who wish to be supervised by Perimeter Institute faculty normally apply through the PSI program. To apply directly to a PhD program, students should submit an application to the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Waterloo.

Students interested in pursuing an MSc degree should apply to Perimeter Institute's PSI program.

Research Interests

My research focuses on nonperturbative, holographic formulations of quantum gravity, the dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories and the uncovering of the physics underlying dualities in gauge theories and string theory.
