Dr. Bryan Zaldívar is visiting us Dr. Bryan Zaldívar from LAPTh - Annecy is visiting the IFT for the period July 10th to 18th, 2017. His office number is 301. His research interests include: Dark Matter, Early Universe and Collider Phenomenology.
Dr. Álvaro de la Cruz-Dombriz is visiting us Dr. Álvaro de la Cruz-Dombriz from University of Cape Town is visiting the IFT for the period June 27th to July 18th, 2017. His office number is 103. His research interests include: dark energy, extended theories of gravity, large-scale structures, neutron stars.
Prof. Hirosi Ooguri is visiting us Prof. Hirosi Ooguri from Caltech & IPMU is visiting the IFT for the period June 21st to 23rd, 2017. His office number is B07. Ooguri is a theoretical physicist working on quantum field theory, quantum gravity, and superstring theory. His research strategy is to discover mathematical structures in these theories and to exploit them to invent new theoretical tools to solve fundamental questions in physics. In particular, he developed the topological string theory to compute Feynman diagrams of superstring theory and used it to solve mysterious quantum mechanical properties of black holes. He also worked on conformal field theory in two dimensions, D branes in Calabi-Yau manifolds, the AdS/CFT correspondence, and properties of supersymmetric field theories and their relation to superstring theory.
Prof. Barry Barish is visiting us Prof. Barry Barish from Caltech is visiting the IFT for the period June 19th to 21st, 2017. His office number is B03. Prof. Barry Barish has recently received the Princess of Asturias Award. His primary research interest has been the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), since he became Principal Investigator in 1994 and Director in 1997. He led the effort through the final design stages, approval for funding by the NSF National Science Board in 1994, and then the construction and commissioning of the LIGO interferometers in Livingston, LA and Hanford, WA. In 1997, he created the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), which now enables more than 1000 collaborators world-wide to participate in LIGO.
