Henry Maxfield, Ph.D.

McGill University

Henry Maxfield is a postdoc at McGill University. Originally from the UK, he studied mathematics at Cambridge University for his undergraduate and master’s degrees before moving to Durham, where he received his Ph.D. in 2015, supervised by Veronika Hubeny. His research centers on understanding how and why calculations quantifying quantum information map to geometric problems in gravity. Much of his recent work focuses on gravity in three space-time dimensions, where many problems become more tractable.
