Lerche, Wolfgang


String Theory in particular and quantum field theory in general, with focus on topological strings, mirror symmetry, and supersymmetric theories for which one can obtain non-perturbatively exact results by using methods of algebraic geometry.

More recently I was working on various aspects of the weak gravity conjectures, which constrain the possible quantum field theories that can be consistently coupled to gravity.
