Renate Loll is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics of Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Her research centres on quantum gravity, the search for a consistent theory that describes the microscopic constituents of spacetime geometry and the quantum-dynamical laws governing their interaction. She has made major contributions to loop quantum gravity and, with her collaborators, has proposed a novel theory of quantum gravity via ‘Causal Dynamical Triangulations.’ Professor Loll heads one of the largest research groups on non-perturbative quantum gravity worldwide and is the recipient of a prestigious personal VICI-grant of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. She is a Distinguished Visiting Research Chair at Perimeter and formerly served as Chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee.
