With Edward Witten he discovered deep connections between the S-duality of supersymmetric gauge theories and the geometric Langlands correspondence.
In a paper from 2007, Anton Kapustin and Edward Witten described a connection between the geometric Langlands correspondence and S-duality, a property of certain quantum field theories.

Kapustin obtained a B.S. in physics from Moscow State University in 1993 and he received a Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1997 with John Preskill as his advisor.

S-duality
