Teaching Responsibilities 2015/16:
I study solutions of Einstein's theory of General Relativity, which is our best classical theory to describe the gravitational field.
I am primarily interested in solutions with a negative cosmological constant, known as anti-de Sitter spacetimes. In particular I am interested in questions of stability and instability for such spacetimes, with particular reference to the effects of different boundary conditions imposed at the conformal infinity.
