Research Topics: Supersymmetric and superconformal gauge theories, AdS/CFT correspondence, gauge/gravity dualities, Entanglement, Topological strings, Matrix Models, Non-perturbative effects in field theories, Classical and Quantum features of Gravity.
My research is focussed on non-perturbative dynamics of strongly interacting nonabelian gauge theories, particularly exact results in supersymmetric gauge theories related to integrability, gauge-string correspondence, and topological field theories. My research work is also devoted to some aspects of classical and quantum black-hole symmetries and dynamics. More recently I have also become interested in the features of the AdS/CFT correspondence concerning the role of entanglement in quantum field theory.
