Research Interests

My research interests focus on non-perturbative approaches to quantum gravity and black hole physics. In particular, I am interested in the statistic mechanical derivation of black hole thermodynamical properties from fundamental quantum geometry degrees of freedom, singularity resolution and application to information loss paradox resolution.
