Christopher Beem

I am an associate professor in the mathematical physics group at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, where I am also a part of the string theory group. Additionally, I am a tutorial fellow in mathematics at St. John's College.

I am interested in mathematical aspects of quantum field theory and string theory. For the past few years, I have been particularly focused on conformal field theories and their algebraic properties, especially in the case of supersymmetric conformal field theories. I am a member of the Simons Collaboration on the Nonperturbative Bootstrap.
