The spectrum of single-trace operators of holographic CFTs at strong
coupling and large N can be mapped to the spectrum of Kaluza-Klein (KK)
excitations over the dual AdS supergravity solutions. Unfortunately,
computing these KK spectra is usually a prohibitively difficult task
even for the simplest AdS solutions. In this talk, I will introduce new
spectral methods based on Exceptional Field Theory that, for certain
AdS/CFT dual pairs, bypass all difficulties and reduce the KK spectral
problem to a simple diagonalisation of suitable mass matrices. I will
illustrate these methods for a class of super-Chern-Simons CFT3s with
AdS4 duals in M-theory and type IIA string theory.
