Dr. Edoardo Vescovi receives Springer Thesis Award 2016

The Springer Thesis Award 2016 has been awarded to Edoardo Vescovi for his PhD Thesis “Perturbative and non-perturbative approaches to string sigma-models in AdS/CFT”.  Edoardo’s dissertation, nominated by the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, was published in Springer Theses, a book series to recognize outstanding doctoral research. The thesis introduces readers to the type II superstring theories in the AdS5×S5 and AdS4×CP3 backgrounds, fokussing on fundamental aspects.
Eduardos’s work, conceived and performed at IRIS Adlershof of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, was supervised by Dr. Valentina Forini, one of our associated research group leaders.
IRIS Adlershof would like to congratulate Edoardo Vescovi and wishes him much success in his future work.
