Veronika Hubeny


Veronika Hubeny is a theoretical physicist, currently a Professor in the Department of Physics at University of California, Davis. She is one of the founding members of the newly-formed Center for Quantum Mathematics and Physics (QMAP). She received her Ph.D. in Physics in 2001 from UC Santa Barbara, held postdoctoral research position at Stanford University (and at UC Berkeley for a few months) followed by a Professorial position at Durham University in the UK, before joining the faculty at UC Davis in 2015. Her research interests lie mainly in areas of string theory and quantum gravity. Hoping to elucidate the fundamental nature of spacetime, she is particularly fascinated by `holographic dualities’ which describe higher-dimensional gravitational theory by a lower-dimensional non-gravitational one. Much of her work involves deeper understanding of black holes within this context, and their mysterious links to quantum information theory.
