My research interests include theoretical cosmology, in particular the possibility for quantum gravitational signatures in the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background radiation. Lately, I've been thinking more specifically about the role of topological structures in the discrete pre-geometries associated with some candidate theories of quantum gravity as well as broader questions on quantum gravitational phenomenology.
