Marika will give an overview of her research into string theory. She will focus particularly on the holographic principle, the idea that gravity can be described by a theory without gravity in one less dimension. The holographic paradigm implies deep relations between hitherto unconnected fields in physics; she will explain why using the example of black holes and quantum computing.
