Netta Engelhardt
Netta Engelhardt’s research works towards developing an understanding of gravity on scales where quantum phenomena become important: inside black holes and near gravitational singularities such as the Big Bang. Her work has focused in part on the black hole information paradox, a puzzle in which quantum information appears to be lost in the process of black hole evaporation, a contradiction with the laws of quantum mechanics. She also works on understanding gravitational singularities within quantum gravity, most recently in the context of cosmic censorship, a conjecture that suggests that singularities that form dynamically are always hidden behind event horizons.
