Johan Samsing meets prof. Robert "Bob" M. Wald for a Science Talk in Niels Bohr Office about his work on quantum gravity and black holes:

Robert M. Wald is an American theoretical physicist and professor at the University of Chicago, known for his groundbreaking work on general relativity, black holes, and quantum gravity.

For this, he recently received the Einstein Prize from the APS Division of Gravitational Physics for "the discovery of the general formula for black hole entropy, and for developing a rigorous formulation of quantum field theory in curved spacetime."

In this video series, Johan Samsing (NBIA) meets 7 outstanding scientists, each of which have made profound contributions to our understanding of the Universe within the areas of black holes, gravitational waves, early universe dynamics, and quantum gravity.

The recordings took place at the Niels Bohr Office during the conference "Current Themes in High Energy Physics, Gravity and Cosmology" held by the Niels Bohr International Academy from Aug. 21st to 25th, 2023.
