Quantum field theory, conformal field theory, supersymmetry, and string theory. Algebraic structures occurring in each of the above.
In the 2022-2023 academic year I am lecturing B7.3 Further Quantum Theory. In the past I have also lectured String Theory I for the Master's programme in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics, the Part A Special Relativity short option, and a graduate course on vertex operator algebras.
At St. John's I tutor physical applied courses, including Geometry, Dynamics, Constructive Mathematics (Algorithms), Differential Equations I & II, Integral Transforms, Part A Quantum Theory, Fluid Dynamics, Special Relativity, Introduction to Manifolds, and Projective Geometry.
