My research interests concern more formal aspects of string theory and gauge theories, as well as related problems in mathematical physics. I have been working, among the others, on topics such as: topological string and field theories, Seiberg-Witten theory, matrix models, non-commutative geometry, knot theory, Calabi-Yau crystals. Occasionally I have also been active in the field of  biophysics, trying to understand some aspects of protein folding, as well as topological properties of biomolecules (such as knotted proteins, interacting RNA, etc.). Currently I am affiliated with University of AmsterdamCalifornia Institute of Technology, and University of Warsaw. More details can be found on my webpage
