Alexander Maloney received his Ph.D. from Harvard University, which was followed by postdoctoral work at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center and the Institute for Advanced Study. He moved to McGill University in 2007, where he is currently an associate professor and William Dawson Scholar.

Maloney’s work focuses on problems in quantum gravity and, in particular, on problems related to black hole quantum mechanics and the AdS/CFT correspondence. In the past, he has worked on simple models of quantum gravity, such as three-dimensional gravity, where it is possible to perform exact quantum mechanical computations that are impossible in more complicated theories.
