Visit from 2023/07/04 - 2023/08/30
Daniel Grumiller is professor at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at TU Wien in Vienna, Austria. He is head of the black holes research group since 2009, after returning to his alma mater from postdoc positions with Roman Jackiw at MIT and Dmitri Vassilevich at Leipzig University. His research focus is on black holes and the holographic principle. For details of his research, see his home page.
TSVP Talk: "Black Holes and the Holographic Principle" by Daniel Grumiller on July 20th at 3pm in L4E48
Office at OIST: Lab 5 EF03r
Mahir Bilen Can
Visit from 2023/06/02 - 2023/09/29
Mahir Bilen Can is a Professor of Mathematics at Tulane University in New Orleans. His research interests include algebraic (semi)group theory, real algebraic geometry, representation theory as well as information theory. He has a particular interest in the application of algebraic geometry to the theory of error-correcting codes. In his recent work, he has developed a theory of quantum error-correcting codes that can handle biased information channels. Personal Website
TSVP Talk: "Quantum Error Correction via Poset Metrics" by Mahir Bilen Can on June 29th at 3pm in L4E48

Visit from 2023/03/23 - 2023/08/15
Artur Tsobanjan is a theoretical physicist who explores foundational issues in quantum theory raised by attempts to quantize gravity. He is particularly interested in finding ways to consistently incorporate the dynamical nature of time in general relativity within a quantum mechanical framework. Artur Tsobanjan received his PhD from the Pennsylvania State University in 2011. He is currently an associate professor at King’s College, Pennsylvania, USA. Google Scholar

Shinichi is originally from Japan but has studied and worked in New Zealand, UK, Germany and Australia. He is currently a Professor of Evolutionary Ecology and Synthesis at the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Sydney). His work revolves around understanding individual variation and its maintenance of it. Yet, his work is interdisciplinary with publications in (bio)medicine, psychology, ecology, evolutionary biology, education, environmental sciences, statistics and neurosciences. For more info, please visit his webpage and check this recent article in Current Biology.
TSVP Talk: "Meta Research & Meta-Analysis in Ecology & Evolution" on March 16 (Thursday), 2023 at 4pm in L4E48.
