The Amsterdam String Theory Group
The Amsterdam String Theory Group is one of the largest and most prominent groups in the world. It consists of faculty members Jan de Boer, Alejandra Castro, Diego Hofman, Ben Freivogel, Jan Pieter van der Schaar, and Erik Verlinde; visiting faculty Koenraad Schalm (Leiden) and Herman Verlinde (Princeton); along with many post-doctoral researchers and PhD candidates. The group's research interests are diverse and extend across all of string theory, including topological strings, supersymmetric gauge theory, gravity/gauge theory dualities, supergravity and string cosmology. There is a stimulating atmosphere in the group, a diverse range of nationalities, and an active visitor program which attracts the best string theorists from all over the world.
