Teaching

  • PH-205 Quantum Mechanics I

    The student will learn basics of Quantum Mechanis, basically, the infinite square well, some problems with simple potentials to sove the Scroedinger equation. Then the oscillator is studied, using the perspective of creation and anhilatation operators, so useful in Quantum Field Theory. Finally, basics of the angular momentum in Quantum Mechanics is covered. The module has a view on simple calculable problems, the effect of measurement and the idea of a complete basis of states, ideas that repeat themselves in all the cases above mentioned.

  • PH-355 Mathematical Methods in Physics III

    This module introduces students to the fundamental concepts and phenomenology of the standard model of particle physics, focusing on the electroweak theory and Higgs boson physics.

Supervision

  • Integrability on the String World Sheet . The project will investigate the gauge-gravity correspondence from a world-sheet perspective. The goal will be to see to what extent the constraint of integrability allows us to build consistent string theories in new space time geometries, and ultimately new dual conformal field theories.
