Carlo Rovelli received his Ph.D. from the University of Padova in 1986. He was on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh from 1990 to 2000 and then went to the Aix-Marseille University in France, where he leads the quantum gravity research group. His activities range from quantum gravity to the foundations of quantum physics and the philosophy of physics. He has been awarded the 1995 Xanthopoulos Award, the Laurea Honoris Causa from the Universidad de San Martin, Buenos Aires, and the Honorary Professorship of the Beijing Normal University in China. He is a senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France and a member of the Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences.
