Irene Valenzuela receives a Starting Grant of the European Research Council – ERC.
The ERC Starting Grant “Qguide: The Quantum Gravity Imprint: New Guiding Principles At Low Energies” focuses on the study of consistency constraints of quantum gravity in effective field theories describing particle physics, and the guiding principles it provides for phenomenology Beyond the Standard Model.
Irene Valenzuela is a young leader in the field of string theory. She obtained the PhD at the IFT in UAM in 2015, and continued her career in several postdocs at world-wide top institutions, such as the Max Planck Institute in Munich, Utrecht University, Cornell University and Harvard University, and recently joined the IFT as Ramón y Cajal Fellow at the IFT. She recently received the 2021 Young Researcher Prize in Physics of the BBVA Foundation and the Spanish Physics Royal Society.
