Dimitrios Patramanis, M.Sc.

Graduate Student

Dimitrios started his academic career in the field of chemistry where he received Bachelor’s degree. However, it was not long before he realized that his true interests lied in theoretical physics which was broadly the topic
of his Master’s level studies. More specifically, Dimitrios is fascinated by  inquiries about the microscopic constituents of our universe and how those can give birth to the large scale structures that we observe. Currently, Dimitrios  research focuses on aspects of holography and in particular the AdS/CFT correspondence. These serve as tools for the construction of toy models that can help us reconcile Einstein’s general relativity and quantum field theory in a controlled setting while also opening a path leading to a full-fledged theory of quantum gravity suitable for describing our universe.  Moreover, Dimitrios is also very interested in science communication and popularization.
