Research

Nick Dorey is a member of the DAMTP High Energy Physics group. His research is concerned with gauge field theories and string theory. He is particularly interested supersymmetric gauge theories and their remarkable duality properties. His recent work focuses on the emergence of integrability, both in gauge theory and string theory, in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
