Research Interests

Zach Fisher is a member of the Quantum Fields and Strings group at Perimeter and a postdoctoral research fellow of the Simons Foundation It from Qubit collaboration. He studies gravitational, holographic and quantum information aspects of string theory, especially via the AdS/CFT correspondence. His research encompasses work on entropy bounds and quantum generalizations of classical theorems in general relativity.
