The theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity have produced important leaps forward in fundamental physics, resulting in profound insights into the workings of the universe. String theory provides a theoretical framework where gravity and quantum mechanics are unified in a consistent way, and Daniel Mayerson uses string theory to build on both theories in his research, which has the broad aim of better understanding black holes and their properties.
