Multidisciplinary Quantum Gravity Studies
Start date: Sep 1, 2011,
End date: Feb 7, 2015
"A major problem of quantum field theory in curved spacetime, and quantum gravity more generally, is the lack of sufficient observational and experimental guidance. To address this issue I am proposing a multi- disciplinary approach to quantum gravity, using its possible connection to easy-to-access physical systems whose description is well-established — in theory and experiment — within other fields, such as quantum information, condensed matter physics, and hydrodynamics. This will allow me to address longstanding questions of semi-classical and full quantum gravity from a new perspective. In addition, I propose to engage the tools and concepts developed for the project’s objectives to further deepen the understanding of the non-gravitational systems evolved. In contrast to many other proposals, this programme’s objectives are both of theoretical and experimental nature, and range from a quantum information approach to quantum gravity to foundational studies on wave-current interactions."
