The research of Joao Penedones and his group is based on Quantum Field Theory and String Theory. The first goal is to develop better non-perturbative methods to study quantum field theories. In this context, the conformal and the S-matrix bootstrap approaches are central tools in the research activities of the FSL. The second goal is to explore the gauge/gravity duality to investigate questions about quantum gravity.

We work closely with the other high energy theory laboratories at EPFL (LPTP, LPPC, LTFP). Together, we organise the High Energy Theory weakly seminar at the Institute of Physics.
