I am a theoretical physicist with broad interests in effective field theory, particle physics, cosmology, scattering amplitudes, and the conformal field theory (CFT) bootstrap.  My present research uses CFT to learn about PDF Document: quantum gravity via the PDF Document: AdS/CFT correspondence.  Why is this exciting?  For an accessible introduction, you can watch my public lecture.

In the last few years I have also been collaborating with both physicists and computer scientists on PDF Document: Machine Learning research, including on scaling laws for neural models and the GPT-3 language model.  My motivation is to understand these systems and to help make them safe and beneficial.

My work has been supported by a Sloan Foundation Fellowship, an NSF CAREER grant, and through the Simons Collaboration on the Nonperturbative Bootstrap.
