2021 REU Presentation

Well, I have finished the 10-week REU program at Lehigh University in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. My work focused on the Swampland program from String theory, and specifically distance conjectures residing on the Swampland. The approach used was to find the distance in field theory space via geometric flows along the metric dictating the space/manifold/moduli in question. This approach has only been used once by L\"ust on the Riemannian space AdS via the Ricci flow to recover the distance conjecture dictating AdS.

Attached in this post in the presentation I gave at the end of the REU, as well as the 2-page report/introduction that is in the seminar handout, which can be found (once posted) on the Lehigh physics website here:
