Homotopy algebras, gauge theories and gravity
This is a pre-viva talk by Tommaso Macrelli, a PhD student in the Fields, Strings, and Geometry Group.

After a review of homotopy algebras, we discuss how these structures emerge in quantum field theory. We focus then on the application of these sophisticated mathematical tools to scattering amplitudes (both tree- and loop-level) and to the understanding of the dualities between gauge theories and gravity, highlighting generalizations of old results and presenting new ones.
This is a pre-viva talk. See INSPIRE for all papers.
