I am currently interested in various aspects of quantum gravity, string theory, holography and black holes physics. The AdS/CFT correspondence provides us with the most powerful tool to study quantum gravity. I am interested in investigating which classical theories of gravity can be consistently quantized or alternativaley, I would like to understand which conformal field theories have consistent large N limits, for which the bulk dual is semi-classical. This will teach us both fundamental constraints on quantum gravity and insights on the emergence of spacetime.

My current projects focus on a direct study of these constraints for 3d gravity in Anti-de Sitter space as well as the study of entanglement and quantum information theory in quantum gravity.
