Jacob Bourjaily is a new Assistant Professor at the NBIA, moving to Copenhagen in the fall. Jacob completed his Ph.D. at Princeton University in 2011, writing a thesis on scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory under the supervision of Nima Arkani-Hamed at the Institute for Advanced Study. Jacob continued this research while a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows at Harvard University from 2011-2104 before taking up his current position at the NBIA.

The primary focus of Bourjaily's research has been working toward an emerging reformulation of quantum field theory. He has contributed many research articles on the subject, including the discovery of a recursive description of scattering amplitudes to all orders of perturbation theory. For this work, Jacob was awarded a MOBILEX grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research in September.
