Atul Sharma

Black Hole Initiative


Atul has a DPhil in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. He is interested in the mathematical physics of black holes, quantum gravity, and scattering amplitudes, with a special focus on Penrose’s twistor theory. On even weeks, his work combines string theory with twistor theory to build holographic dualities in asymptotically flat space-times. On odd weeks, he dreams of solving the googly problem and finding a theory of everything governing our world.
