# Philippe Sabella-Garnier

I am a postdoctoral researcher focusing on string theory at the Lorentz
Institute, Leiden University. I joined the group of Koenraad Schalm and
Jan Zaanen in 2016.

## Academic Bio

I obtained my PhD in 2016 from the University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Prof. Joanna Karczmarek.

My thesis was titled "Geometry from Quantum Mechanics: Entanglement, Energy Conditions and the Emergence of Space".

I obtained my B.Sc. (Joint Honours in Math and Physics) from McGill University in 2011.

## Research interests

My research focuses mostly on the connection between quantum
information (entanglement entropy and related quantities) and the
structure of space-time. More specifically, I am interested in
multipartite entanglement, the time evolution of entanglement entropy
and constraints on bulk metrics from entanglement inequalities. In the
past, I have also worked on the structure of noncommutative geometry
based on matrix models.
