This research group's focus is on various aspects of supergravity, supersymmetric quantum field theory and string theory.
Unification of gravity with the other fundamental interactions within a consistent quantum theory is one of the central problems of high-energy physics. The complete structure of such a theory is not yet known despite numerous efforts undertaken over several decades to construct it. The most interesting models for quantum gravity include string theory and its low-energy approximations known as supersymmetric theories of gravity or supergravity.
