Profile

Biography

I obtained a PhD in Physics from Yale University under the supervision of Feza G├╝rsey. I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Maryland, University of Chicago, and the University of Bern. I have been in York since 1996.

Research

Overview

My main research area is in the interface between general relativity and quantum field theory. In particular, I work extensively on quantum field theory in de Sitter spacetime, which is relevant to inflationary cosmology. I also work on quantum entanglement and semi-classical aspect of quantum field theory.
