Research


I am interested in physics beyond the standard model. I also study the nonperturbative dynamics

of general quantum field theories, using a variety of tools, from supersymmetry, branes, and

dualities, to lattice field theory and Monte-Carlo simulations. My most recent publications:



“New nonperturbative scales and glueballs in confining supersymmetric gauge theories”

with Mohamed Anber, arxiv:1711.00027[hep-th]


“String tensions in deformed Yang-Mills theory”

with Erfan Shalchian, arxiv:1708.08821[hep-th]


“QCD on a small circle”

with Kyle Aitken, Aleksey Cherman, Laurence Yaffe, arxiv:1707.08971[hep-th]
