Current Research and Scholarly Interests


My research interests are wide-ranging:

1) In the context of gravity, how does spacetime emerge from its dual quantum system? How does the dual quantum system encode the answers to questions that involve local physics in semi-classical gravity? How do you avoid the "firewall" paradox in the context of black-hole evaporation?

2) How do you calculate electrical and heat currents in strongly-coupled many-body systems? How do you explain the linear-in-temperature resistivity in high-temperature cuprates?

3) Use tensor network methods to study electrical and heat transport and also the real-time dynamics of systems out of thermal equilibrium.
