Prahar Mitra studies the relationships between asymptotic symmetries in asymptotically flat spacetimes and soft theorems in quantum field theory. At IAS, he plans to explore the consequences of this relationship for four-dimensional scattering amplitudes when recast as two-dimensional correlation functions and for the black hole information paradox.
