I study the properties of matter and radiation at high energy-density using relativistic quantum field theory.

I also study the anti-de Sitter - conformal field theory correspondence arising from D-branes in string theory, and on the thermodynamics of nonlocal field theories arising from string theory. The physical theories of primary interest include QCD, effective hadronic field theories, electroweak theory, and nonlocal field theories arising from or motivated by string theory. The physical environments in which they play a role include high energy nuclear collisions at RHIC and LHC, the early universe, neutron stars, and black holes.
