Research Interests

My main research program is devoted to trying to develop exact techniques for solving gauge theories and string theories. In particular I am very interested in exploring integrable facets of N=4 SYM and type IIB strings in AdS_5xS^5, two theories which are related by the celebrated AdS/CFT duality. Using integrable techniques we expect to be able to compute exactly several observables in these theories. The hope is that, once these theories are properly solved and all quantities understood in the same framework, this will open the door to solving many other theories. This was the case when Onsager solved the 2D ising model; this opened a pandora box out of which the solution to many other models came out.

I am studying Correlation Functions, Wilson Loops and Scattering Amplitudes using Integrability and Holography.

I am also thinking about Gravity Amplitudes and about the Conformal Bootstrap.
