I show that the effective action of string compactifications has a structure that can naturally solve the supersymmetric flavour and CP problems. At leading order in the g_s and \alpha' expansions, the hidden sector factorises. The moduli space splits into two mirror parts that depend on Kahler and complex structure moduli. Holomorphy implies the flavour structure of the Yukawa couplings arises in only one part. In type IIA string theory flavour arises through the Kahler moduli sector and in…

Weakly-coupled IIA flux compactifications

We study compactifications of type IIA string theory on Calabi-Yau manifolds that are mirror to a subset of the type IIB LARGE-volume models. A combination of flux, α' corrections and

Sequestering in string compactifications

We study the mediation of supersymmetry breaking in string compactifications whose moduli are stabilized by nonperturbative effects. We begin with a critical review of arguments for sequestering in

String loop moduli stabilisation and cosmology in IIB flux compactifications

We present a detailed review of the moduli stabilisation mechanism and possible cosmological implications of the LARGE Volume Scenario (LVS) that emerges naturally in the context of type IIB

Towards realistic string vacua from branes at singularities

We report on progress towards constructing string models incorporating both realistic D-brane matter content and moduli stabilisation with dynamical low-scale super- symmetry breaking. The general

Hide and Seek with Massive Fields in Modulus Mediation.

It is shown that the renormalization group running of the soft supersymmetry breaking parameters due to the interactions of massive fields is canceled by the threshold corrections at one-loop order, if their mass is given by nonperturbative dynamics controlled by the same modulus that mediates supersymmetric breaking.

Sequestering of Kähler moduli in type IIB string theory

In this thesis we employ string perturbation theory in toroidal orbifold models to study aspects of supersymmetry breaking in type IIB string theory. First, we determine the dependence of physical

F-theory, GUTs, and the weak scale

In this paper we study a deformation of gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking in a class of local F-theory GUT models where the scale of supersymmetry breaking determines the value of the ? term.

Sequestered String Models: Supersymmetry Breaking and Cosmological Applications

In the present thesis I focused on the study of the phenomenology arising from a class of string models called sequestered compactifications, which were born with the aim of getting low-energy SUSY

Sequestered de Sitter string scenarios: soft-terms

A bstractWe analyse soft supersymmetry breaking in type IIB de Sitter string vacua after moduli stabilisation, focussing on models in which the Standard Model is sequestered from the supersymmetry

Consistent supersymmetric decoupling in cosmology

The present work discusses several problems related to the stability of ground states with broken supersymmetry in supergravity, and to the existence and stability of cosmic strings in various



Low Energy Supersymmetry from Non-Geometry

We study a class of flux compactifications that have all the moduli stabilised, a high (GUT) string scale and a low (TeV) gravitino mass that is generated dynamically. These non-geometric

Hierarchies from fluxes in string compactifications

Warped compactifications with significant warping provide one of the few known mechanisms for naturally generating large hierarchies of physical scales. We demonstrate that this mechanism is

Gaugino mediated supersymmetry breaking

We consider supersymmetric theories where the standard-model quark and lepton fields are localized on a `3-brane' in extra dimensions, while the gauge and Higgs fields propagate in the bulk. If

Supersymmetry breaking and moduli stabilization with anomalous U(1) gauge symmetry

We examine the effects of anomalous U(1)A gauge symmetry on soft supersymmetry breaking terms while incorporating the stabilization of the modulus-axion multiplet responsible for the Green-Schwarz
