Currently I am interested in string field theory and conformal field theory. I study (mostly numerically) classical solutions of SFT on various D-brane systems, which describe changes of boundary conditions from the perspective of conformal field theory. My goal is to better understand D-branes in string theory and to find new consistent boundary conditions for free bosons on a torus and Wess-Zumino-Witten models.

Selected publications:
