Dr. Michal Heller will receive the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s Sofja Kovalevskaja Award. Using the 1.65 million Euro to establish a new research group at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute), he will examine the possibility that our three-dimensional world may actually be a hologram. Dr. Heller will begin work at the Albert Einstein Institute in December 2016.
