David Mateos

An ICREA research professor in the Department of Quantum Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Barcelona (UB), he has a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the UB and has had several postdoctoral stays at University of Cambridge and the University of California. His research work, for which he has received several prestigious research grants and prizes, is concerned with understanding the physical principles of the universe at their most basic level. He believes that, in order to provide answers to the great questions of contemporary physics, among them the properties of black holes and the origins of the universe, it will be necessary to have a unified quantum theory covering all interactions at the most fundamental level. Hence, he is presently working on the development of a quantum string theory that would potentially describe all the particles of nature and their interactions in one single, unified, theoretical scheme.
