Founding member and research physicist of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Research interests

Quantum gravity, which is the unification of Einstein's general theory of relativity with quantum theory. He also works on the foundations of quantum mechanics, cosmology, elementary particle physics, astrophysics and theoretical biology.

The theoretical physicist Lee Smolin is interested in the problem of quantum gravity reconciling quantum theory with Einstein's gravitational theory, the theory of general relativity, to produce a correct picture of spacetime. He also thinks about creating what he calls a theory of the whole universe, which would explain its evolution, and he has invented a method by which natural selection might operate on the cosmic scale.
