In work with Gabriel Menezes, we are exploring the use of quantum field theory for quantum gravity at all scales. Starting from a scale invariant action, our variant uses an extra Yang-Mills gauge interaction to induce the Einstein action in such a way that gravity is kept weakly coupled at all scales. We have explored the unusual field theoretic aspects of this theory, and so far have promising results.
