Research Interests

My main research program is devoted to trying to develop exact techniques for solving gauge theories and string theories. The main goal is to come up with a more powerful formulation of interacting quantum gauge theories, better suited for its analysis beyond weak coupling.

Besides this practical outcome, this reformulation will likely also hint at important new physical principles. Onsager's 1944 solution of the 2D Ising model gave rise to an outstanding improvement of our description of 2D classical models. Whole new fields arose as a result, enabling rapid advances in our understanding of critical phenomena, phases transitions, conformal field theory, and more. Finding an exact solution of an interacting quantum gauge theory will, I hope, enable similar advances and a deeper understanding of nature itself.

With this motivation in mind, my main focus right now is in understanding Correlation Functions, Wilson Loops and Scattering Amplitudes in planar N=4 Super Yang-Mills Theory using Integrability and Holography.
