Research Interests:

My research program, broadly known as String Phenomenology, aims at understanding the deep connection between String Theory, Particle Physics, and Cosmology. In particular, I am interested in constructing and studying models of particle physics and cosmology from string theory in order to see what string theory might tell us about physics in the high energy frontier and the early universe. My work is supported in part by the US Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and the Research Corporation.
