Research interests
My primary research interests lie at the intersection of geometry and physics. In particular, I am interested in `stringy geometry'investigating the appropriate geometric framework for describing string theory.
General relativity is described using differential geometry on Riemannian manifolds. Gauge theories are described using principal Gbundles. Tduality is a symmetry in string theory which maps identifies equivalent string theory solutions on geometrically and topologically distinct backgrounds. Some string backgrounds are `nongeometric', exhibiting noncommutative and even nonassociative geometric behaviour. I am interested in studying various aspects of higher structures in geometry, and their relationship to string theory and quantum field theory.
