will present promising type IIB string models which allow for inflation, low energy supersymmetry and gauge coupling unification with no cosmological moduli problem. I will first describe how to embed these models in a compact Calabi-Yau with all closed string moduli stabilised in a de Sitter vacuum. I will then analyse soft supersymmetry breaking showing how the Standard Model can be sequestered from the supersymmetry breaking sources, resulting in soft terms hierarchically smaller than the gravitino mass.
