Research
My main interest lies in the realm of classical ‘relativistic’ gravity as described by general relativity and its modifications, particularly in its relation to Galileirelativistic physics in terms of postNewtonian expansions.
I believe that for a proper understanding of such relations, one needs to work in a welldefined conceptual framework, enabling the use of systematic methods. In particular, one needs a clear geometric setting in which to analyse the problem at hand.
On a more general note, I am interested in conceptual aspects of (Poincaré)relativistic physics in a wider sense, and of differentialgeometric structures in physics.
