Additional information

Research area

My research is in the mathematical structure of quantum field theory and string theory. I am interested in conformal field theories and their applications to physics and mathematics. Currently I am working on the conformal bootstrap and on modular invariance, with applications to AdS/CFT holography and to Calabi-Yau geometry.

Curriculum Vitae

I did my Ph.D. with Matthias Gaberdiel at ETH Zürich from 2006 through 2008. After that I spent a year as a postdoc at Harvard, three years as a McCone fellow at Caltech, and three years as a postdoctoral researcher at Rutgers University. In 2015 I moved to ETH Zürich.
