Theoretical High Energy Physics

Research area: Particle physics and high energies

  • Quantum field theory
  • Quantum information theory
  • Holography
  • Gravitational theories


I am interested in the interplay between quantum information theory, quantum field theory and gravity. In particular, I study entanglement entropy and other measures of information in quantum field theory and its applications to the AdS/CFT correspondence.
