Jordan Cotler has a B.Sc. in physics and mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University. He is currently a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and a Fellow at the Harvard Black Hole Initiative. He is interested in nonperturbative aspects of gauge theory and gravity, in particular those pertaining to early universe cosmology and black holes. He also studies quantum information theory and computational complexity theory as applied to developing algorithms for quantum computers as well as exploring underlying information processing in quantum many-body systems.


Steps toward Quantum Gravity in a Realistic Cosmos

Theorists have modeled an expanding spacetime—akin to our Universe—by taking inspiration from a string theory framework in which spacetime is emergent. Read More »
