Prof. Julian Sonner
I obtained my PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Prof. Paul Townsend (FRS) and remained there after graduation, as a Fellow of Trinity College splitting my time between DAMTP in Cambridge and the Theory Group of Imperial College in London. I subsequently spent three years in the other Cambridge, as a postdoc at MIT, before joining the faculty at the University of Geneva.
Dr. Antonin Rovai
My Alma Mater is the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, where I obtained my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Frank Ferrari. After my PhD, I pursued postdoctoral work at the Arnold-Sommerfeld Center at LMU Munich and at the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT. At the end of the summer of 2015, I left MIT to lecture for a semester at ULB before joining UniGe in January 2016.
Dr. Benjamin Withers
I obtained my PhD at Imperial College London under the supervision of Dr Toby Wiseman, before taking an 1851 Royal Commission fellowship at Durham University and a postdoctoral position at the University of Southampton. I spent one year splitting my time between Queen Mary University of London and DAMTP in Cambridge before joining the University of Geneva in October 2016.
I did my undergraduate degree in Physics at Los Andes University, Venezuela, carrying out my thesis work at the Institute of Photonic Sciences - ICFO in Barcelona, Spain under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Acín. For my master's thesis in Geneva I studied different aspects of higher-spin black holes in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
I did my undergraduate and graduate degree at the University of Zagreb, Croatia. I obtained my Master's degree in February 2016. My thesis work was on relativistic nuclear energy density functionals, done under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Tamara Nikšić. As of October 2016 I am a PhD student at the University of Geneva.
At the University of Geneva since year one of my Bachelor's degree, I have worked for 3 years (and am still working) with Prof. Alain Blondel, Carmine Senatore and more recently Anna Sfyrla as an assistant, teaching physics to non physics students.
Fascinated by topics such as holography, entanglement, renormalization group and what happens when they collide, I chose to do my Master thesis in the group of Prof. Julian Sonner
I recently finished my undergraduate degree in physics at the University of Geneva, and I have started a Master’s degree in theoretical physics in September 2016. Last year I worked with Nicolas Brunner on entanglement and non-locality of multipartite quantum systems. Currently I am studying some properties of the SYK model.
