I work on field theoretic aspects of de Sitter (dS) space, and its relation to the physics of inflation. My collaborators and I have developed techniques to compute higher order corrections to the stochastic inflation formalism, and its bearing on primordial cosmological fluctuations. I presently work on refining and extending these methods with the goal that we can understand quantum mechanics in dS as well as we do in flat spacetime.
