Over the years I have worked on a number of diﬀerent problems in theoretical high energy physics and cosmology.
Cosmology : Nongaussianity from excited initial states; Experimental signatures of anisotropic inﬂation; Searching for slowroll moduli inﬂation in massive type IIA supergravity with metric ﬂuxes.
de Sitter : Challenges of embedding de Sitter in string theory; Measurement theory in de Sitter space; Evolution of gravitationally unstable de Sitter compactiﬁcations.
QFT/String Theory : Collective coordinates in string theory; Constraints from extended supersymmetry in the eﬀective action of YangMills theories; Noncommutative quantum ﬁeld theory at ﬁnite temperature; Tunneling in theories with many ﬁelds.
Phenomenology : Bounds on microscopic physics from P and T violation in atoms and molecules; Constraints on the baryogenesis scale from neutrino masses.
