Benjamin Knorr received his doctoral degree (summa cum laude - with distinction) in 2017 from the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena, Germany. He was awarded the Rohde&Schwarz physics faculty prize for his outstanding PhD thesis. Afterwards, he held a two-year postdoc position at Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and a three-year postdoc position at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, before joining Nordita as a fellow in 2022.

Benjamin’s main field of research is quantum gravity, with a particular focus on non-perturbative renormalisation group methods and gravitational scattering amplitudes. As a side interest, he studies critical phenomena related to second order phase transitions in condensed matter systems.

Benjamin speaks German, English and Dutch.
