Shota Komatsu is working on quantum field theory and string theory. Most of his research so far focuses on developing techniques to solve the prototypical example of the AdS/CFT duality, N=4 SYM. He plans to use these techniques, along with other methods, such as conformal bootstrap, to gain deeper insight into quantum gravity and holography.
