Eva Silverstein Physicist
Eva Silverstein’s research focuses on UV complete mechanisms and systematics of cosmic inflation, including string-theoretic versions of large-field inflation (with gravity wave CMB signatures) and novel mechanisms involving inflation interactions (with non-Gaussian signatures in the CMB). She is also interested in concrete holographic models of de Sitter expansion in string theory, aimed at upgrading the AdS/CFT correspondence to cosmology; mechanisms for non-Fermi liquid transport and “2k_F” singularities from strongly coupled finite density quantum field theory; and mechanisms by which the extra degrees of freedom in string theory induce transitions and duality symmetries between spaces of different topology and dimensionality.
