I am a member of the Brandeis High-Energy and Gravitational Theory Group. My research interests are primarily in string theory and related areas of quantum field theory, general relativity, geometry, and quantum information theory. My research currently focuses on the use of tools from quantum information theory, such as entanglement entropies, to better understand quantum field theories, quantum gravitational theories, and holographic dualities connecting them. My work is supported by the National Science Foundation under a CAREER grant.
During the spring semester of 2013 I am teaching Physics 162b, Quantum Mechanics II.
I am co-organizing a U.S.-India Advanced Studies Institute on "Thermalization: From Glasses to Black Holes", 10-21 June 2013 at IISc Bangalore.
