In recent years I've been following three threads of developments:

1. Applications of string theory, as a model of strongly coupled quantum field theories, to the physics of QCD and of condensed matter systems.

2. Foundations of string Theory: Matrix Theory, AdS/CFT, black hole physics, time dependence in string theory.

3. Helicity amplitudes.

My research has also benefitted increasingly from the use of numerical simulations, mostly to solve systems of non-linear partial differential equations resulting from the study of Einstein equations in context relevant to holography.

More detailed information can be found in my list of publications.
