Paolo Benincasa joined the NBIA as Assistant Professor in November 2017. After completing his PhD at the University of Western Ontario and Perimeter Institute in Canada in 2008, where he developed the first studies on the hydrodynamics of non-conformal strongly-coupled plasmas using holography as well as on the perturbative structure of scattering amplitudes, he held postdoctoral position at the University of Durham, Santiago de Compostela as Juan de la Cierva fellow and at the Instituto de Física Teórica in Madrid as well as a visiting researcher position at Perimeter Institute in 2017. Paolo´s current research focuses  in reformulating quantum field theory directly in terms of observables and the application of this idea to cosmology.
