AdS Feynman diagrammatics

Develop efficient tools and compute higher-point and higher-loop Feynman diagrams in anti-de Sitter space.

Conformal blocks

Find explicit expressions for and study properties of conformal blocks, which are the building blocks of local correlation functions in CFTs.

Discrete AdS/CFT correspondence

Develop discrete analogs of the AdS/CFT correspondence inspired from number theory, and understand their deep connection with the usual continuum formulation.

Discrete spacetime

Study exact string dynamics in terms of algebraic evolution laws on discrete spacetimes.

Lightcone SUSY

Explore the properties of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in the lightcone gauge, where the description is entirely in terms of the physical degrees of freedom.

p-adic field theories

Investigate quantum field theory on p-adic spaces and its relation to QFT on continuous spacetime. The simplest constructions of QFT on p-adic spaces are nonlocal, have an inherently hiearchical nature, and enjoy various powerful properties such as a non-renormalization theorem.

Quantum error-correction and holography

Explore the deep connections between quantum error-correcting codes and gravity in the framework of the AdS/CFT correspondence.

Vortex string dynamics

Use effective string theory methods to study vortex dynamics in low viscosity media.
