DeWolfe, Oliver M Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Prof. DeWolfe is interested in string theory, quantum field theory and general relativity. He is primarily focused on two areas: investigating string theory as a theory of quantum gravity ultimately responsible for the forces and particles of the universe and the nature of space and time, and using string-inspired models to explore phenomena related to particle, nuclear and condensed matter physics. The tools of his research are supergravity, brane physics and the gauge/gravity correspondence.


  • string theory and supergravity, their applications to other phenomena via holography, particle physics and quantum field theory
