I work in
the Mathematics Division of Science
of New York University in Abu Dhabi
in the group of Prof. Hisham Sati leading the
Research Center for Quantum and Topological Systems
(see at CQTS for latest activity).



I am researching mathematical and fundamental physics (e.g. on Hypothesis H and Quantum Systems).

I like to put math/phys information into context.
For that purpose I had started (in Nov 2008)

with edit logs and discussion being had on:

For logs of further activity see

while n n Lab-edits are announced

For links to technical discussions about math and physics see my pages:
