Dualities between quantum field theories and gravitational theories.
Investigation of strongly coupled quantum field theories with chiral anomalies, in particular their phase diagram, transport coefficients and the dynamics far from equilibrium.
High precision construction of black holes and black strings in higher dimensional asymp- deadly shallow Kaluza-Klein theories, calculation of the phase diagram and the critical geotechnical between black holes and black strings.
(Quantum) gravitational aspects of string theory and higher spin gravitation. Construction of Black holes in higher sping gravity; expansion of duality to asymptotically flat Space Times.
