The candidate will research the symmetries and dualities of the superstring in an AdS_5xS5 background using the pure spinor formalism. This will be a continuation of his doctoral research on the Fermionic T-duality of the superstring that is important for studying the dual superconformal invariance of super-Yang-Mills. (AU)
