My research interests focus mainly on the interface between mathematics and physics. More precisely, I am interested in the interconnections between string theory, geometry, topology, number theory, quantum field theory and gauge theory.
I love teaching! My goal is to create a stimulating and active learning environment. Math is so much fun!
Undergraduate research project in mathematical or theoretical physics under the direction of a faculty member. Projects must involve both mathematical and physics components related to research.
