Research Interests

Research plan

Interplay between High Energy Physics (Quantum Field Theory & String Theory) and Low Energy Physics (Statistical Physics):

-(Boundary) Conformal Field Theory applied in: i) 2D Lattice Models and Schramm-Loewner Evolution (SLE), ii) String Theory and D-branes.

-Non-perturbative Quantum Field Theory and String Theory: I am currently studying i) (AdS/CFT) Dualities, ii) Crystal Melting-Dimer Model and Its Relation to SUSY Gauge Theory-Topological String Theory-Brane Tiling.
