Evelyn-Andreea Ester is part of the Strong Gravity group at the Niels Bohr Institute and works under the supervision of Professor Vitor Cardoso on QED effects in black hole spacetimes. She previously attended Royal Holloway, University of London, where she completed a Mathematics BSc with a thesis on the Dirac Equation. She then completed a Physics MSc with a thesis on particle collisions in the vicinity of classical black holes and a one-year research project on Hawking radiation, presenting a proposed solution of the black hole information paradox via spontaneous wavefunction collapse and a numerical analysis of how much of the dark matter observed today can come from decaying primordial black holes. Her research continues to highlight quantum effects in the strong gravity regime.
