Research Interests

Quantum field theory and its application to elementary particle physics. The general structure of quantum field theoretic actions with particular attention paid to the realization of internal global and gauge symmetries and especially supersymmetry including higher dimensional space-time brane world models. Renormalization theory including renormalized perturbation theory as well as exact Wilson renormalization group equations and techniques.
