My professional
activity is summarized in my CV. A brief
description is given below.
Research
I
have worked on a wide spectrum of subjects, ranging from formal questions in
field theory, to phenomenology of particle physics and cosmology. My published work addresses questions on:
 Phase
transitions and the exact renormalization group
 Beyond the Standard Model physics
 Dark matter and dark energy
 Inflation and supersymmetry
 Phase
diagram of QCD and heavy ion collisions
 Brane
physics (phenomenology and cosmology)
 Inhomogeneous cosmology
 Applications
of the AdS/CFT correspondence
A list of my publications, as well as a citation
summary, can be obtained from INSPIRE. My most cited
works are on the exact renormalization group, leptogenesis, and cosmology in
theories with extra dimensions.
My current research interests include the nature of dark matter and
dark energy, the calculation of the nonlinear spectrum of the distribution of
matter in the Universe and the stability of the electroweak vacuum.
