Research Interests:

My principal
research interest is in theoretical aspects of elementary particle physics,
especially in supersymmetric quantum field theory, supergravity, superstring
theory and its nonperturbative extension called Mtheory. I have occasionally
worked on topics in pure mathematics and on topics related to condensed
matter physics. The goal of string theory, and its nonperturbative extension
Mtheory, is to achieve a complete unification of all matter and forces,
including gravity, in a scheme consistent with quantum mechanics and general
relativity. Much of my research has dealt with understanding the dynamics
of superstring theories, trying to establish their consistency, and finding
their connection with quantum field theory and known particle physics.
