Research Interests

Dr. Nayeri’s main research interests focus on cosmology and gravity. From bre-big bang cosmology and string cosmology to structure formation in the late time universe. From universe with extra dimensions and (mem)brane cosmology to quantum field theory in curved spacetime; From statistical mechanics of strings in the very early universe to thermodynamics of gravitating systems. In short his interests spans any thing smaller than nuclei of atoms to larger than galaxies.
