Scientific interests: Keski-Vakkuri’s main research interests are issues related to gravity and string theory, such as quantum physics in systems with gravitational singularities (black holes, big bang) and the correspondence of gravity and gauge theories (AdS/CFT duality). Currently he is studying duality as a new framework for models of strongly coupled condensed matter and quark-gluon matter systems.
