### About

Professor Akhoury's research interests are in quantum field theory and elementary particles. He has been working recently on chiral perturbation theory, the Standard Model, anomalies in gauge theories, problems related to regularization and renormalization of gauge theories, unitarity and infrared behavior in gauge theories and investigations of possible non-perturbative methods in field theories.
