Monica Guică obtained her PhD from Harvard in 2008, followed by a postdoc in Paris LPTHE and CEA Saclay, and one at UPenn.

Monica's research is centered around understanding gravity at a fundamental level. Important clues from black hole physics show that gravity is holographic, i.e. that a gravitational theory on a given space-time can be described by a field theory in lower dimensions. Her interests are focused on finding the microscopic description of black holes - especially realistic ones - using holography, on understanding the holographic dictionaries in instances that go beyond the well-studied AdS/CFT correspondence, and on understanding the emergence of space-time and gravity from the dual field theory perspective, using entanglement. While holography and the mechanism of emergence of space-time are believed to be universal, string theory, as the only consistent theory of quantum gravity known to date, provides an invaluable concrete framework for studying these questions.
