From 9/2007 – 8/2008:

Vijay Balasubramanian's current work in string theory focuses on the physics of black holes and the Big Bang, the 'emergence' of space and time from a complex underlying configuration space, and the quest to construct realistic predictive models of particle physics and cosmology from string theory. His current work in neuroscience attempts to give a theory of the structural and functional design of the visual pathway.
