Jakob Palmkvist

Researcher at Chalmers, Physics, Theoretical Physics

Jakob Palmkvist works as a researcher at the division of Theoretical Physics since July 2017. The aim of the research is to understand nature at its most fundamental level, where physics borders on mathematics. Often, new mathematical tools are required to discover and describe symmetries, dualities and other relationships within and between physical models. Jakob Palmkvist has mostly studied infinite-dimensional Lie (super)algebras, but also other related algebraic structures, and applied them to areas of string theory and M-theory, in particular gauged supergravity and extended geometry.
