Daniele Oriti is a Researcher at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at Utrecht University, Netherlands, working on non-perturbative quantum gravity, having previously worked at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. He is well known for his results on spin foam models, and is among the leading researchers in the group field theory approach to quantum gravity.
