I am a theoretical physicist, currently a Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and a member of the Centre for Particle Theory at the Durham University.
My research interests lie mainly in areas of string theory and quantum gravity.
Much of my past work has been set in the context of the gauge/gravity duality and black holes.
You can find most of my papers using the inSPIRE HEP search engine, in the following publication list.
