Our professors had such a great time in Toronto last year, they insisted on a second round!
One again we're bringing a little bit of the Faculty of Science to Toronto for some casual academic conversations. Pull up a chair, have a drink and a few munchies on us, and engage in some spirited discussions with various science faculty members.
Recent developments in String Theory center on the idea of the "Swampland", which is defined as the set of low-energy effective theories which do not have any counterpart in a complete theory of quantum gravity. I will provide a pedagogical introduction to the Swampland concept, with a particular focus on implications for cosmology. There may be some snark.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
