Black holes in the water tap


About the activity

We explore physical models in Nature whose dynamics is analogous to the one of gravitational objects (black holes, black strings, etc.). We show how this duality is useful to understand strongly-coupled systems (high-temperature superconductors, quark-gluon plasma in particle accelerators, etc.).

Dr. Rodrigo Olea

He is a Chilean theoretical physicist who got graduated from Universidad de Chile (2001). After a first postdoc at Centro de Estudios de Científicos (CECs, Valdivia), he learnt holographic techniques as a postdoc of M. Bañados at P. Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC). He was also a postdoctoral researcher at U. Tecnica Lisboa (with J. Lemos) and at U. degli Studi di Milano (with D. Klemm), and associate researcher at Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. 

His research focuses on renormalization techniques and computation of holographic properties of gravity actions.
