Evita Verheijden obtained her Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Amsterdam with a dissertation titled “To the horizon and beyond: unitary evolution and non-universal dynamics of horizons in holography”. Her research focuses on aspects of quantum gravity related to the dynamics and microscopic structure of horizons: those of black holes, and the ones encountered in cosmological spacetimes. She is interested in quantum-informational aspects of black holes, such as the black hole information problem and complexity. She also works on understanding the near-horizon geometry of near-extremal black holes using lower-dimensional holography. In her free time, she plays the piano, often goes to the cinema, and likes to go (ice) swimming.
