Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University

Areas of Expertise and Interest

My research involves mainly quantum field theory, gravitation, and cosmology.

Recent projects include:
1) stringy Born-Infeld electrodynamics - a way to measure the string coupling constant by means of light-deflection observations. 
2) Evaporation of quantum-corrected Reissner Nordstrom black holes. 
3) Non-singular black holes - black holes with regular cores supported by nonlinear EM fields. 
4) Accelerated observers and non-thermal vacuum states. 
5) loop quantum gravity cosmology.
