My research focuses on quantum field theory and its applications to particle physics, gravitational physics and condensed matter systems. I am particularly interested in improving our understanding of gravity using the methodology of particle physics and, more generally, in theoretical consistency conditions for quantum field theories in flat spacetime and in de Sitter. My previous work has included the application of effective field theory techniques to various states of matter, from ordinary fluids to new quantum liquids that could exist in the cores of very dense stars.
