Dr David Berman


Dr David Berman is a string theorist at Queen Mary University of London. After obtaining his PhD in Durham he worked as a researcher at the universities of Utrecht, Groningen and Jerusalem before becoming a research fellow at the University of Cambridge and then finally a faculty member at Queen Mary. He has spent the last 20 years working on understanding the symmetries behind string theory- the theory unifying general relativity with quantum theory. His research today focusses in studying new and novel geometric formulations of the theory.

Apart from theoretical physics, he has held a long term interest in the arts and in particular how the flow of ideas generated by contemporary physics can flow into, and become a part of, the cultural landscape. This has lead him to be involved in various collaborations with artists throughout the years, most recently with Turner prize winning sculptor Grenville Davey.
