I am interested in applications of quantum field theory. I try to work on systems that have close connections to experiment (or observation); my research tends, therefore, to have a fairly phenomenological slant. I am interested in renormalization group methods, effective field theories, classical field methods, and incorporating advances in other fields of physics (such as quantum optics) into the lexicon of QFT.

A more detailed explanation of my (fully or partially) completed projects can be found here. I will keep an up to date list of what I am currently working on here.

**If any of my ghosts of research past, present, or future interest you, or you have any ideas for a collaboration drop me a line.**
