Outreach and responsibilities
Outreach in theoretical physics
I have realised a project within the Agora scheme of the Swiss National Science foundation with the title
A Voyage to the Boundaries of Theoretical Physics .
The project had the purpose of illustrating to high-school students some aspects of the life and research of a theoretical physicist.
To this end, I realised the YouTube videos Why black holes could delete the universe — The information paradox
and String theory explained — What is the true nature of reality? in collaboration with Kurzgesagt (over
40,000,000 views to date). I have also visited high schools in several Cantons in Switzerland.
It is possible to download the posters for each video, as well as a booklet which may be useful for teachers who may want to present this material in class or for other educational, not-for-profit purposes.
