Project Title

Quantum Gravity from a Quantum Information Theoretic Perspective

Project Summary

Quantum gravity is the problem of joining quantum theory to general relativity to make a theory of space and time. I study models of quantum space-time, which I treat as analogous to problems in condensed matter physics in that the challenge is to understand how macroscopic behavior is emergent from a many body system. In my work I have shown these can be addressed by using methods initially developed to model quantum computers. I propose to use these new methods to investigate the theoretical and observational consequences of specific models of quantum space-time.
