Krembil Galileo Galilei Chair in Theoretical Physics
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
If you are interested in pursuing a MSc degree, please apply to the Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) masters program. If you are interested in working with me as a PhD student, please send me an email at [email protected]. The PSI program offers the simplest route to work with me as a PhD student.
From July 31 2021 to July 31 2022 I have worked on two general topics: the study of mathematical properties and applications of supersymmetric or topological quantum field theories in various dimensions and of topologically twisted versions of holography and M-theory.
