Black Hole Mysteries

Dr. Shira Chapman of the Department of Physics studies the behavior of black holes and quantum systems.

Physicist Dr. Shira Chapman has been fascinated by black holes since her childhood. She is pursuing her passion as a researcher, studying the relation between information processing in quantum mechanical systems and the way black holes process the information of objects which fall into them. “I knew as a child that I wanted to do quality science that would contribute to a deeper understanding of the

universe and its behavior,” she recalls. Dr. Chapman completed her bachelor's degree in physics while still in high school and began her graduate studies at Tel Aviv University during her military service. She held postdoctoral fellowships at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, in, Canada and at the University of Amsterdam. She joined BGU’s Department of Physics in January 2021.
