Aitor Lewkowycz

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Physics

About

Originally from Spain, he was part of the Perimeter Scholars International’s master’s program at Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada. He obtained his Ph.D. from Princeton University under the supervision of Juan Maldacena. His research is based in entanglement entropy in holographic systems, with the particular motivation of understanding the structure of the Hilbert space in quantum gravity.
