My research field lies at the interface between the theory of Quantum Fields (the rules that govern the behavior of the elementary particles) and the theory of General Relativity (the rules that govern the behavior of gravity). Therefore, I am mostly interested in the study of Cosmology, that is the place where these two theories naturally meet. You can find a more detailed description of my research here

Here you can find the list of my publications, as provided by SPIRES.

And here you can find the .pdf version of some of my talks:
Shock waves in the Karch-Randall model
N-flationary magnetic fields
Standard 4d gravity on a brane in a 6d flux compactification
Cosmology with PNGBs
Parity violation in the CMB from a pseudoscalar inflaton
