It consists of faculty and staff members Jay Armas, Daniel Baumann, Jan de Boer, Alejandra Castro, Miranda Cheng, Diego Hofman, Ben Freivogel, Jan Pieter van der Schaar, Erik Verlinde and Marcel Vonk, along with many visiting faculty, post-doctoral researchers and PhD candidates.
The group's research interests are diverse and extend across all of string theory, including AdS/CFT and its applications, string cosmology, emergent gravity and mathematical aspects of string theory. There is a stimulating atmosphere in the group, a diverse range of nationalities, and an active visitor programme which attracts the best string theorists from all over the world.
