Research Interests

I have worked on early universe cosmology, focusing especially on its connections with microscopic physics. I am interested in obtaining a unified view of the early universe through theoretical physics (such as string theory, particle physics, or some other quantum gravity theory), as well as extracting information on high energy physics from cosmological observations.
