We are pleased to announce that Antoine Bourget will join the IPhT permanent researchers team, as of September 1, 2023.
After studies at Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole des Mines, Antoine Bourget did a Ph.D. at LPTENS, followed by post-doctoral studies at the University of Oviedo, Imperial College London, and IPhT (joint with LPENS).
Antoine is an expert of strong coupling phenomena in quantum field theory, which encapsulate the vast field of problems outside the reach of perturbation theory, from classical field configurations (monopoles, instantons) to quantum effects (quark confinement, low-energy structure of the proton). Using algebra and geometry, he has been striding the bridge provided by string theory and supersymmetric field theory to address the far-reaching problem of the classification of conformal field theories and the study of the renormalization group flows connecting them.
Welcome among us Antoine!
