Theoretical Particle Physics

Superstring theory is a candidate theory of the elementary particles and their interactions. It also governs the structure of spacetime, and provides a quantum theory of its gravitational dynamics. My research aims to extract a unified description of elementary particles and interactions from superstring theory, and to find characteristic, testable, features of string models. It also aims to study distinctive features of a superstring description of spacetime geometry, such as possible "non-commutativity" of the spacetime coordinates, or "mirror symmetry" of spaces solving the superstring equations.
