My research is in the area of semi-classical gravity, that is, quantum field theory on a classical curved spacetime background. I am currently studying the local interactions of theoretical particle detectors with quantum fields with a view to eventually observing an analogue of the Unruh effect in the lab. My current aim is to understand some current analytic results more deeply by seeing how they generalise to arbitrary dimensions and along different trajectories. Another question I am interested in addressing is how long an experimentalist will have to run her experiment before she is able to see the Unruh effect.
