Description

My current interests include the quantum geometry of D-branes, in particular in the interplay between open topological strings, homological mirror symmetry and the Landau-Ginzburg realization of the category of topological branes. More recently I was working on various aspects of the swampland conjectures, which constrain the quantum field theories that can be consistently coupled to gravity.

Aside from research, I have also administrative duties at CERN which include, after having served as head of the Theoretical Physics Group, being chairman of the Fellows and Associates Committee of TH, and organizer of the CERN general colloquium.

Note: mails with "no-reply" go right into the trash.
