Areas of Expertise and Interest

I have done work at the interface of gravitational physics and particle physics. I have studied gravitational theories in higher dimensional space-times in an effort to understand how one might combine gravity with particle physics. I have approached the gravity particle physics boundary also via investigations the quantum phenomenon whereby black holes radiate thermal radiation. Recently I have been studying the quantum mechanical Aharonov-Bohm effect, where particles have their quantum phase modified even in the case when they experience no classical forces.
