Research Interests

The heart of my interest echoes the one so eloquently expressed by Albert Einstein, "I want to know how God created this world. I'm not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." In more concrete terms, I am interested in Beyond the Standard Model Physics, and I am working on how we can shed light on this huge and fascinating area using results from conformal field theory. I am also fascinated by the ideas of Timeless Quantum Gravity and Vanishing Dimensions as two radically different approaches to finding a Theory of Everything.
