Thomas Hertog

Thomas is an internationally renowned cosmologist and a close collaborator of Stephen Hawking.

After a research career abroad at CERN and at the University of California, he recently returned to Belgium to launch a team at the KULeuven that works around the interface of string theory and cosmology.

At TEDxLeuven Thomas will describe the cosmic context of our world and indicate how a profound understanding of cosmology will be instructive to safeguard Mankind's future here on Earth or elsewhere.
