Thomas Thiemann (PhD RWTH Aachen University, 1993) is jointly appointed with the Max Planck
Institute for Gravitational Physics in Germany. His research centres on non-perturbative quantum
field theory, in particular quantum gauge field theory and quantum gravity; non-perturbative aspects
of quantum string theory; constructive and algebraic quantum field theory; Euclidean quantum field
theory and its connection with statistical mechanics; semiclassical quantum field theory; and non-
perturbative approximation methods.
Itay Yavin (PhD Harvard, 2006) is jointly appointed with McMaster University and joined Perimeter
as an Associate Faculty member in particle physics in 2011. From 2006 to 2009, he was a Research
Associate in the Department of Physics at Princeton University. Prior to coming Perimeter, he was
a James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Physics at New York University. Yavin’s
research focuses on particle physics and the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. In
particular, he is interested in the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking and the nature of dark
matter. Most recently, he has worked on interpreting puzzling data coming from experiments looking
for dark matter in the lab.
