Sridip Pal is working to deeply understand quantum field theory, a framework to describe nature, from the theory of fundamental particles to collective phenomena in condensed matter, using symmetry-based arguments, especially scale invariance. Currently, Pal is working on two-dimensional conformal field theories and nonrelativistic avatars of these theories in different dimensions.
