String Theory, Quantum Field Theory

Sungjay Lee is a theoretical physicist working mostly on Quantum Field Theory (QFT). This is a natural framework describing many different parts of physics, from particle physics, to condensed matter physics, and to statistical physics. To make fundamental theoretical advances in some of the most interesting problems in modern physics such as the strong nuclear force, strongly coupled systems of electrons, and quantum gravity, it is essential to understand QFT in the strongly coupled regime. Over the years, he has investigated new theoretical tools to understand the strong dynamics of supersymmetric field theory, conformal field theory, and string/M-theory.
