Victor Alonso Rodriguez

Department of Physics

PhD in Physics 2021, Harvard University


Victor received a PhD in theoretical physics from Harvard University in 2021, and is currently an FFPS postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University. His research focuses on string theory and theoretical high-energy physics. Victor's interests include fundamental aspects of string perturbation theory, conformal field theory, holographic duality, and black hole physics. His recent research has explored a class of non-perturbative effects in string theory mediated by D-instantons that, in many cases, are directly calculable using perturbative techniques. He has also investigated holographic dualities between two-dimensional string theories and matrix models, as a possible window into a non-perturbative description of string theory.
