Non-Perturbative Problems in Quantum Field Theory

My current research is focusing on non-perturbative problems in quantum field theory applied to Quantum Chromodynamics and possible new strong gauge dynamics Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) for electroweak symmetry breaking at the TeV scale. In addition, I look at method computational Lattice Field Theory, AdS/CFT duality and string theory. Furthermore, I research into new algorithmic multigrid methods to resovle multiscale physics and targent heterogeneous hardware with GPU accelerators.
