Luis Apolo

I am an assistant researcher at the Beijing Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Applications. My research focuses on quantum and classical theories of gravity, conformal field theories, and their relationship via the AdS/CFT correspondence.


I'm interested in using (conformal) field theories to understand universal features of quantum gravity and holography. Some of the topics of my research include:

Currently I'm studying a class of solvable irrelevant deformations of 2d conformal field theories and their relationship to non-AdS holography. You can read more about it here and here.
