My research mostly focuses on quantum aspects of gravity and black holes. Quantum mechanics shows that black holes are thermodynamical objects. It is desirable to associate a statistical mechanical description if not a full quantum description to these thermodynamical systems. The holographic principle, states that a gravitational system can be equivalent to a system with a lower number of spacetime dimensions. This principle is our magor aproach to tackle this problem.
I am currently a senior postdoc at IPM school of physics. (If you want to apply to work with me as a graduate student, please contact me, afshar [AT] ipm.ir)
