My name is Kanato Goto and I have been working at iTHEMS since April 2019. I am a theoretical physicist studying string theory and my main research interests lie in foundational questions about quantum gravity, black hole physics, and supersymmetric quantum field theories. I am currently trying to understand the basic mechanism and the mysteries of the holographic principle, which states that information about gravity and the spacetime contained in our three-dimensional universe can be completely described by the two-dimensional boundary surrounding it, just like a hologram emerges from a sheet of photographic film. At iTHEMS, I hope to broaden my research horizon through discussions with researchers in various fields.
