Abstract: DNA, RNA and proteins, which drive life, have complicated, constantly changing structures. For example, DNA inside cells is supercoiled, and the amount of supercoiling is constantly under flux. 
This supercoiling can drive structural transitions, such as AT-rich regions in under-twisted DNA denaturing under physiological conditions.

The complexity of radiotherapy techniques for treating head and neck cancer has significantly advanced over the previous two decades. However, it remains common for patients to finish treatment with a severe loss in salivary function, causing significantly diminished quality of life assessments. The overall goal of research endeavours in this thesis is to develop innovative techniques that lead to better understanding and consideration of salivary glands during head and neck radiotherapy planning.

Abstract: The electronic band structure of rhombohedral graphene multilayers hosts van Hove singularities at which the single particle of states diverges.  I will discuss experiments in which we use electrostatic gates to tune the chemical potential through these singularities, revealing a cascade of correlated electron phases; notably, both singlet and triplet superconductors are observed proximal to or within generalized ferromagnetic phases where the system spontaneously polarizes into one or more of the spin- and valley isospin flavors.

Abstract

What is the mass of the neutrino? Why is there an abundance of matter over antimatter in our universe? And what is dark matter? Strangely enough, answers might very well lie, yet undiscovered, in impossibly rare nuclear decays, infinitely subtle wobblings of nuclei embedded in radioactive molecules, or the faintest recoils of nuclei colliding with dark matter.

Understanding quantum chaos in conformal field theories is extremely important. Chaotic dynamics can explain why so many systems can be studied with statistical mechanics, and why systems reach ``typical’’ states so quickly. Outside of the simplest, highly symmetric systems, all systems are expected to be described by chaotic dynamics; whether and how these dynamics can appear in theories with conformal symmetry is thus essential to further our understanding of most CFTs.

Abstract

The common statement that any consistent quantum gravity theory contains dynamical objects with all possible charges suggests that there are still a number of hitherto-unidentified branes in string theory. In this talk I will discuss four of these new branes, focusing on heterotic string theories. The focus of the discussion will be on the relationship between these branes and the lower-dimensional vacua obtained by closed string tachyon condensation in the ten-dimensional, non-supersymmetric heterotic string theories.

Abstract

This presentation delves into the effects of our motion through the Universe on our observations. I will discuss the significance of this phenomenon and its relevance in cosmology, including a detailed examination of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) data and insights from source count studies, notably involving quasars. I will conclude by examining the broader implications of our cosmic motion.

Abstract:

The cosmic neutrino background is like the cosmic microwave background, but less photon-y and more neutrino-ey.  The CNB is also less talked about than the CMB, mostly because it's nearly impossible to detect directly.  But it's different in several interesting ways that will be discussed.

Abstract

Supersymmetric partition functions often have interesting geometric interpretations. For example, the partition function of the 2d A-model encodes the zero-pointed Gromov Witten invariants of the target space. Such interpretations sometimes allow us to derive new identities or test existing conjectures.
