Hisham Sati

Hisham Sati (website) is working on non-perturbative phenomena in string theory/M-theory using tools of cohomology, homotopy theory, algebraic topology and higher category theory. His thesis advisor was Michael Duff.

Hisham Sati is assistant professor in the Mathematics Department at Pittsburgh University.

From his website:

My research is interdisciplinary and lies in the intersection of differential geometry, algebraic topology, and mathematical/theoretical physics. I am mainly interested in geometric and topological structures arising from quantum (topological) field theory, string theory, and M-theory. This includes orientations with respect to generalized cohomology theories, and corresponding description via higher geometric, topological, and categorical notions of bundles.
