Professor Christopher Beem
I joined St John's College in 2016.
My research interests relate to the mathematics of quantum field theory and string theory, and in particular the algebraic structures that underpin strongly interacting quantum systems. In recent years I have been studying a deep connection between supersymmetric quantum field theory and the subjects of vertex operator algebras and deformation quantization. I also use numerical techniques to investigate highly supersymmetric conformal field theories in four or more dimensions.
