Nature in the world-order was fitted together
out of unlimiteds and limiters,
both the whole world-order
and all the things in it.
Philolaus of Croton, On Nature.*
Welcome to my personal website. My name is Wolfgang Martin Wieland. I am a theoretical physicist and researcher at IQG Erlangen Nuremberg.
My main research interests are in general relativity and quantum gravity. Research achievements and ongoing projects on quasi-local observables, geometry of null surfaces, spin structure of quantum spacetime, spinfoams, quantum reference frames, topological field theories and the relationship between the loop gravity and twistor approaches to quantum gravity. Under-graduate studies in Austria (Innsbruck and Vienna), PhD from France (Marseille), postdocs in Europe, Canada and the U.S.A. Thesis prize from Aix-Marseille University in 2014. Invited speaker and invited plenary speaker at various international conferences. Bronstein Prize for research in Loop Quantum Gravity in 2019.
