Research Interests

My research deals with the interplay between quantum field theory and gravity.
In particular I am interested in entanglement entropy and complexity, both from a holographic perspective and from a field theory perspective. I am also interested in aspects of non relativistic field theories, anomalies and the fluid gravity correspondence.
