Title: 
Review of Double Field Theory
Abstract: 

In this talk I review Double Field Theory, which is an approach to make T-duality a manifest symmetry at the level of effective space-time theories by doubling the coordinates. A particular emphasis is given to type II Double Field theory that unifies the conventional type IIA and type IIB supergravity.
