Hello ladies and gentelmen.

I am currently studying mathematics in middle-east, I want to study Twistor Theory in master. the problem is most of twistor specialists in UK(including Roger Penrose) and my scholarship allow me to choose only university in USA . I did quick search here are professors or schools that I found interested in twistor:

UK:

Oxford University (the only university that has group on twistor http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/groups/mathematical-physics/research-areas/twistor-theory)

2-Dr Maciej Dunajski

University of Cambridge

Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group(Centre for Mathematical Sciences)

3-Stephen Huggett, Reader in Mathematical Physics, University of Plymouth

-Christian Saemann Department of Mathematics, Heriot-Watt University

4-Bill Spence, current: Head of School of Physics and Astronomy, Queen Mary, University of London

5-Gabriele Travaglini School of Physics and Astronomy Queen Mary, University of London

5-Mr Moritz F. Högner, Moritz is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics High Energy Physics research group. His current research interests are self-duality, twistor theory and integrability.

USA:

Edward Witten(who combined twistor and string theory) : But seems near to impossible to be your advisor ("www.princeton.edu/physics/graduate-program/theses/theses-from-2005/P.Svrcekthesis.pdf" )

So, Which school do you suggest to study twistor in usa?
