My main current research focus is trying to understanding how does a space-time description emerge from a more fundamental description such as AdS/CFT, and what can one understand from this about the black hole problem.
I am also interested in the possible connection between holography and quantum information.
I also maintain an interest in holographic approaches to condensed matter and QCD.
My work is partially funded by a grant from the Israel science foundation-ISF, tiltled “Decoding the Hologram: How bulk physics emerges from a holographic theory” 2017-2021.
