David Tong studies various topics in theoretical physics, usually at the interface of quantum field theory and string theory. The emphasis of his work is often on extracting predictions from string theory and D-branes for more conventional systems, such as gauge theories, soliton dynamics and cosmology. More details on David's reseach and publication can be found on his research pages.
