Much of my research has been devoted to studying AdS/CFT Correspondence and more generally gauge/gravity dualities. I would like to find a way of understanding strongly interacting field theories, for example QCD at low energy, using string theory. Take a look at my publications for more details. Or you might want to listen to some of my online talks. There's Chaos and KS, The Conifold and Beyond, del Pezzo, Markov, Seiberg, Impure AdS/CFT, and Holographic Superconductors.

I'm an assistant professor in the high energy theory group here at Princeton. I was a postdoc at the University of Washington in Seattle and before that at the KITP in Santa Barbara. I received my Ph.D from Princeton in 2002, where my advisor was Igor Klebanov.
