<![if !vml]><![endif]>My research is centered around superstring theory, supergravity and black holes. Click here for a list of publications. For my curriculum vitae, click on CV .
Book “Time in Powers of Ten”
Together with Gerard ’t Hooft, I wrote a book on time scales in nature. It is a variant on the well-known “Powers of Ten”, where one plays with length scales. The book is published by World Scientific (English version, Japanese) and Veen Magazines (Dutch version).
