Title: Anti-brane uplift instability and goldstino condensates

Abstract:   We investigate the formation of composite states of the
goldstino in theories with non-linearly realized supersymmetry and
show that the pure Volkov-Akulov model has an instability towards
goldstino condensation. We discuss the limitations and implications of
our findings for string models involving anti-brane uplifts. This talk
is based on https://arxiv.org/abs/2203.12636.
