Scientific Interests

  • Quantum gravity, in particular properties of quantum spacetime, in general high energy physics
  • Quantum gravity phenomenology, in particular the black hole and gravitational waves, in general quantum cosmology
  • Mathematical aspect of field-theoretic models, in particular the mathematical structure of the physical theories, in general mathematical physics
  • Computational physics, in particular high performance computing and algorithms, in general the interdisciplinary area between physics, mathematics and computer science
