Much of my research has been devoted to studying AdS/CFT Correspondence and more generally gauge/gravity dualities. I would like to find a way of understanding strongly interacting field theories, for example QCD at low energy, using string theory. Take a look at my publications for more details. Or you might want to listen to some of my online talks. There's An Introduction to Holographic Superconductivity and Limits of Entanglement Entropy for example.

I'm an associate professor at the Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics here at Stony Brook. From 2007 until 2011, I was an assistant professor at Princeton University. Before that, I was a postdoc at the University of Washington in Seattle and at the KITP in Santa Barbara. I received my Ph.D from Princeton in 2002, where my advisor was Igor Klebanov.
