Bio/Research

Professor Hartnoll is a theorist working on a newly emerging interface between gravitational physics and exotic phases of low temperature matter. This connection builds upon the `holographic correspondence', which is among the most surprising results to emerge from string theory in recent years. The correspondence implies that the gravitational dynamics of black hole event horizons can be equivalently formulated as the dissipative dynamics of strongly correlated matter. This equivalence simultaneously offers to shed light on mysterious aspects of black hole physics and also to provide a new computationally tractable window into strongly correlated quantum matter such as high temperature superconductors.
