Paul Chesler

​​Paul Chesler's research lies at the interface of black holes, numerical relativity and quantum field theory.  Chesler’s research has played a leading role in advancing numerical relativity, especially in so-called holographic spacetimes.  Together with holographic duality, his work opened the door to studying far-from-equilibrium dynamics in strongly correlated systems, a largely unexplored regime with applications ranging from condensed matter physics to cosmology.  Chesler’s research interests include quark-gluon plasma, turbulence in general relativity, and the dynamics of phase transitions.
