Thomas Galley obtained his PhD from University College London in 2018 for work in the foundations of quantum theory. Following this he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada before joining the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information inĀ Austria as a postdoctoral researcher in 2022. His contributions to the field of quantum foundations include studying modifications to the quantum measurement postulates, theory independent proposals to infer the nonclassical nature of the gravitational field, and introducing group theoretic methods to recent approaches to quantum reference frames.


Might There Be No Quantum Gravity After All?

A proposed model unites quantum theory with classical gravity by assuming that states evolve in a probabilistic way, like a game of chance. Read More »
