Research Interests

    My research papers in the last several years are concerned about string duality, mathematics seen through the glasses of string theory, and particle-physics applications of string theory (non-perturbabtive aspects in hadron high-energy scattering, unified theory, and inflation).

    In the following, links are provided to (the abstracts and pdf copies of) some of my papers that reflect my taste in science well.

My recent research interests are in these subjects
