I am primarily interested in theoretical cosmology. I do most stuff that I find fun and interesting : various permutations of string theory, numerical cosmology, early universe cosmology, primordial gravity waves, cosmic microwave background, models of the dark sector, ultra-relativistic collisions of solitons  and cake.
