Shamit Kachru Physics

Shamit Kachru is interested in the physics of string theory and M theory. His previous work has focused on stringy modifications of geometry, duality and exact results in supersymmetric compactifications, and supersymmetry breaking. Most recently, he has been doing research at the interface between string theory and cosmology.
