Prof. Robert MANN
Transforming Africa with Quantum Physics
Expertise: Gravitation and Quantum Physics
Professor Mann works on gravitation, quantum physics, and the overlap between these two subjects. He is interested in questions that provide scholars with information about the foundations of physics, particularly those that could be tested by experiment.
Professor Mann has a lively and energetic research group of about 10 graduate and undergraduate students, where we address a number of interesting questions in physics, such as
• How would relativity influence how a quantum computer worked?
• Could we use a quantum probe to peek inside a black hole?
• Is it possible that the Big Bang could be replaced with a black hole at the beginning of time?
Professor Mann has a doctorate in physics from the University of Toronto.
He has taught at AIMS South Africa.
