Title: Moduli Stabilisation and the Holographic Swampland

Abstract: Moduli stabilisation is an important and necessary step in connecting string vacua to observable physics. This generally starts with AdS solutions, which subsequent steps then uplift to de Sitter space. This talk considers the properties of such AdS vacua when viewed through the lens of the AdS/CFT correspondence and considers whether swampland conditions in the AdS supergravity theory can be translated into statements about the CFT.
