A String Theory Perspective on Cosmology
I review some of the lessons we have learned from the identification of what can be constructed in string theory (string landscape) and what cannot (string swampland) and apply it to questions of interest in cosmology. These ideas lead to strong constraints both on early cosmology as well as the present and the future of our universe.
