Research interests

Broadly speaking, my research area is that of gravitational physics. On the one hand, I am interested in the classical theory, i.e. general relativity and generalized theories of gravitation. On the other hand, I am working on questions related to loop quantum gravity, the thermodynamic properties of black holes, and quantum cosmology.
