I spent 10 years (minus the occasional major interruption) studying and working as a post doc in string theory, most recently as a research associate in theoretical physics in the theoretical physics group at Masaryk University in Brno. I worked on string theory, more specifically my interest was in M-Theory and string dualities. You can read something about what I actually did.
