  • Quantum Field Theory Part I (SoSe 2013, SoSe 2014 and SoSe 2015)
  • Introduction to String Theory and AdS/CFT correspondence (WiSe 2013/14)
  • Quantum Field Theory Part II (WiSe 2014/15)
  • Guest lecturer and advisor for student talks for the seminar Holographic methods in condensed matter theory, see course webpage (WiSe 2014/5)


Scientific Interests:

Quantum Field Theory, String Theory

AdS/CFT Duality and its generalizations (known as gauge/gravity dualities), in particular,
  • Applications towards condensed matter physics, QCD and Quark-Gluon Plasma
  • Implications of the AdS/CFT Duality for Quantum Gravity and String Theory
  • Formal aspects of AdS/CFT Duality
