Renate Loll (born in 1962) is working on a mathematical description of space and time that answers such questions as ‘why does space have three dimensions, whereas time has only one?’. Ultimately, she wants to derive both space and time from a single, fundamental law. To achieve that aim, she combines physics and mathematics and uses computer simulations to build models of the universe, which she then compares with Einstein’s theories. This enables her to develop new ideas about quantum gravity.
