Jacob Bourjaily


Assistant Professor (Niels Bohr International Academy)

Research Interests:

The primary focus of my research has been the development of a recursive reformulation of perturbative quantum field theory based exclusively on physical observables, and improving the mathematical and computational tools needed to determine and evaluate scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory more generally. This programme of research has important applications for predicting real observables for experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and has many deep connections to active areas of mathematical research involving graph theory, motivic cohomology, and the geometry of certain stratifications of Grassmannian manifolds.
