G2 manifolds prominently feature in dualities of string
compactifications preserving four supercharges. In this talk I will
discuss the geometric origin of such dualities and present several novel
construtions of explicit examples for G2 manifolds realized as twisted
connected sums. In particular, I will review recent progress for mirror
symmetry of type II strings on G2 manifolds, as well as the 4D N=1
duality between heterotic string theory and M-theory on G2 manifolds.
