About the Author

Johanna Erdmenger is a research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Physics, Munich, Germany. She obtained her Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge, England, in 1996 and spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at MIT (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA) from 1999-2001. She has written over 40 publications in the areas of string theory and quantum field theory, in particular on gauge/gravity dualities and their relation to QCD, on matrix cosmology, on supersymmetry breaking and on field theory methods in condensed matter theory. She has recently been appointed as editor of The European Physical Journal C.
