Jorge Zanelli
Jorge Zanelli was born in Santiago and studied physics at the University of Chile and at the State University of New York, where he received his Ph.D in 1982. His dissertation dealt with supersymmetry and cosmology and was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Max Dresden. In 1982 he went to Italy as a postdoctoral fellow to the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, where he investigated the quantum mechanics of cosmological models. In 1984 he returned to a position at the University of Santiago and at the recently established Centro de Estudios Científicos de Santiago (CECs), of which he has been a research member until the present day, working mostly on black holes and quantum theory of gravity. His current interests include black hole physics and Chern-Simons (super) gravity theories.
