As Editor-in-Chief, I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Travel Awards sponsored by Universe. The awards were granted to Dr. Mahdis Ghodrati, a postdoctoral fellow at the Yangzhou University, and Ms. Mariana Carrillo Gonzalez, a Ph.D. student at the University of Pensylvania. The awards recipients will be supported with 800 Swiss Francs each, to be used towards travel expenses to attend conferences of their choice in 2019.
Dr. Mahdis Ghodrati’s current research focuses on holographic complexity and applications of AdS/CFT in quantum information. She is planning to present her work on “The Connection between Holographic Entanglement and Complexity of Purification” at the Quantum Information and String Theory, Kyoto, Japan,
27 May–28 June 2019.
Ms. Mariana Carrillo Gonzalez’s current research focuses on high energy physics and particle cosmology. She is planning to present her work at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, Lindau, Bavaria, Germany, 1–5 July 2019 and [email protected]: Multimessenger Universe Conference, Pennsylvania, USA, 24–27 June 2019.
Universe is proud to support these two young researchers working in the field of theoretical physics and wishes them further success in their careers. We are grateful to all who submitted applications—thank you for letting us get to know you and your work. We hope all of you continue to pay attention to Universe in the future.
I would like to congratulate the winners and thank the selection committee for their excellent work in selecting the winners from such a large number of excellent candidate profiles.
