David Turton

Welcome to my webpage, I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at CEA Saclay, Institute of Theoretical Physics.

My research interests include string theory, black holes, AdS/CFT, supergravity, and cosmology.

I am motivated by fundamental questions such as: Is string theory a consistent theory of quantum gravity? Is it capable of describing the universe we live in? Black holes are among the most fascinating objects in our universe, and they provide an important arena in which to probe such questions. I am particularly interested in the black hole information paradox.

My current research is focused on black holes in string theory. I am currently working on AdS/CFT in the D1-D5 system, neutral black hole microstates in string theory and thermalization in the deformed D1-D5 orbifold CFT.

My publications can be viewed using the link on the left or directly from Inspire.
