Nonperturbative Effects in String Theory
Physics Beyond the Standard Model
ParticleCosmology
Current Projects:
 Understanding of Grand Unification and its interplay with Supersymmetry, Supersymmetry breaking and extra spacetime dimensions
 Realization of cosmological inflation in String Theory and study of its infrared dynamics (related topics are also studied in the Cosmology group)
 Development of particlephysics models for Dark Matter, especially in models with extra dimensions (related topics are also studied in the Cosmology and LHC/New Physics groups)
 Particle phenomenology of the landscape of string vacua: MSSM and GUT model building, effective actions, Supersymmetry breaking from String Theory
 Mathematical properties of string compactifications: geometry of Type II orientifolds with Dbranes and fluxes, heterotic string vacua, M/FTheory compactifications (see also the Partnership Mathematics and Physics )
