From 9/2014 – 8/2017:

Aron Wall studies the thermodynamics of black holes and other horizons, mostly by proving theorems that connect gravity to information theory. He would like to find out what to postulate about the microstates of quantum gravity in order to get these thermodynamics principles to arise naturally.
