Abstract: T-branes are supersymmetric configurations of multiple Dp-branes with non-commuting vacuum expectation values for two of the worldvolume scalars. They defy usual geometric intuition and typically feature unconventional brane-model-building phenomena.

In this talk I will argue that, in the regime of large non-Abelian-field vevs, T-branes are best described by Abelian configurations of curved D-branes. I will discuss two explicit examples in support of this statement, one of which uncovers an intriguing link between T-branes and Matrix Models.
