    Gerard ‘t Hooft biography

    Science speaker Gerard ‘T Hooft won a Nobel Prize for his work on quantum physics. A celebrated lecturer and distinguished keynote speaker, Gerard ‘T Hooft delivers insights gleaned from a lifetime of keen observation.

    Gerard ‘T Hooft is Distinguished Professor at Utrecht University and one of the world’s most innovative theoretical physicists. He shared the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics for his description of “the quantum structure of electroweak interactions.”

    ‘T Hooft is especially noted for his work with gauge theory, an area of field theory with special consequences for the study of black holes and quantum gravity. He has proven that gauge theories are renormalizable, explored dimensional regularization, and established the holographic principle.

    After earning his doctorate from Utrecht University, ‘T Hooft joined CERN as a fellow. There, he conducted pioneering research that later earned another team the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics. ‘T Hooft returned to Utrecht in 1974 before spending two years as a lecturer at Stanford and Harvard Universities.

    ‘T Hooft returned once more to Utrecht University, this time as a full professor. He was named Distinguished Professor at Utrecht in 2011. From 2007 to 2016, he served as editor in chief of the prestigious journal Foundations of Physics.

    When asteroid 9491 was named in his honor, ‘T Hooft wrote a constitution for its future residents. Prior to his Nobel recognition, ‘T Hooft won the Wolf Prize, second in prestige among physicists only to the Nobel. He has also received the Lorenz Medal for contributions to theoretical physics and the Netherlands’ highest scientific honor, the Spinozapremie. He is a commander of the Order of the Netherlands Lion and an officer of the French Legion of Honor. ‘T Hooft is a member of the leading scientific academies in France, the UK, and the United States.
