Research Interests

His main research program is devoted to trying to develop exact techniques for solving gauge theories and string theories. In particular he is very interested in exploring integrable facets of N=4 SYM and type IIB strings in AdS_5xS^5, two theories which are related by the celebrated AdS/CFT duality. Using integrable techniques we expect to be able to compute exactly several observables in these theories. The hope is that, once these theories are properly solved and all quantities understood in the same framework, this will open the door to solving many other theories. This was the case when Onsager solved the 2D ising model; this opened a pandora box out of which the solution to many other models came out. In the past he has been mostly interested in the spectrum problem, i.e. in computing the exact anomalous dimensions of local gauge invariant operators in N=4 SYM. More recently he is extending my research to more dynamical quantities such as correlation functions and scattering amplitudes.
