Research Interests

From July 31 2018 to July 31 2019 I have worked on three general topics:
the study of mathematical properties and applications of
supersymmetric or topological quantum field theories in various dimensions,
of topologically twisted versions of holography and M-theory
and of new computational approaches to study strongly interacting three-dimensional
quantum field theories.
