Poul Henrik Damgaard


Poul Henrik Damgaard did his undergraduate studies at the University of Copenhagen and then went to Cornell University, where he received his PhD in 1982. He has held post-doctoral positions at Nordita, CERN, and the Niels Bohr Institute, and has for a period of six years been Scientific Associate at the Theory Group of CERN. 

In 1995 he took up a position as Senior Lecturer at Uppsala University and that same year moved to the Niels Bohr Institute on a similar position. He has been Professor of Theoretical Physics since 2010, and Director of Niels Bohr International Academy since its beginning in 2007. 

His current research interests include modern techniques for amplitude computations, non-perturbative studies of a highly supersymmetric theory as formulated on a space-time lattice, and, most recently, the application of modern amplitude methods for efficient computations of classical two-body dynamics in general relativity with special aim towards analytical predictions for gravitational wave emission of two massive mergers
