2017 New Horizons Prize in Fundamental Physics

For imaginative joint work on higher spin gravity and its holographic connection to a new soluble field theory.


I am fortunate to live in an era of theoretical physics where people freely discuss and exchange unpublished ideas and value the overall progress of our community more than the assignment of credits. My own work is a mere speck in the vast landscape of achievements by today's young minds. I have no doubt that our better work is yet to come in the near future.
