Combustion science will play a major role in the future quest for sustainable, secure and environmentally friendly energy sources. Two thirds of the world energy supply rely on combustion of fossil and alternative fuels, and all scenarios forecast an increasing absolute energy supply through combustion, with an increasing share of renewables. Thus, combustion will remain the major actor in transpo ...

Manipulation of topological phases with cold atoms (TopoCold)

Start date: Feb 1, 2017, End date: Jan 31, 2022,

Topological states of matter constitute one of the hottest disciplines in quantum physics, demonstrating a remarkable fusion between elegant mathematical theories and technological applications. However, solid-state experiments only provide a limited set of physical systems and probes that can reveal non-trivial topological order. It is thus appealing to seek for alternative setups exhibiting topo ...

This project is founded on a new formulation of Einstein's equations in dimension 4, which I developed together with my co-authors. This new approach reveals a surprising link between four-dimensional Einstein manifolds and six-dimensional symplectic geometry. My project will exploit this interplay in both directions: using Riemannian geometry to prove results about symplectic manifolds and using ...

Role of Apolipoproteins L in immunity and disease (APOLs)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2020,

Work conducted in my laboratory on the trypanosome killing factor of human serum led to the identification of the primate-specific Apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1) as a novel pore-forming protein with striking similarities with proteins of the apoptotic BCL2 family. APOL1 belongs to a family of proteins induced under inflammatory conditions in myeloid and endothelial cells. APOL1 is efficiently neutraliz ...

Most real-life elections involve many candidates. Coordination problems in multicandidate elections make the strategic behavior of political agents fundamentally different than in two-candidate elections. The literature’s typical focus on two-candidate settings is thus a clear handicap to understand elections outside the US. The main objective of this project is two-fold: (i) generating new method ...

To better constrain the response of Earth’s climate system to continuing emissions, it is essential to turn to the past. A key advance would be to understand the transition in Earth’s climate response to changes in orbital forcing during the 'mid-Pleistocene transition' (900 to 1200 thousand years ago) and in particular the role of greenhouse gases. Unravelling such key linkages between the carbon ...

The Radical Plasticity Thesis: How we learn to be conscious (RADICAL)

Start date: May 1, 2014, End date: Apr 30, 2019,

RADICAL explores the idea that consciousness is something that the brain learns to do rather than a static property of certain neural states vs. others. Here, considering that consciousness is extended both in space and in time, I adopt a resolutely dynamical perspective that mandates an experimental approach focused on change, at different time scales. I suggest that consciousness arises as a res ...
