Read more about the speaker below the YouTube-frame of evening.
Héctor Olivares studied Physics at the University of Veracruz, and at the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute, in Mexico. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow at the Radboud University Nijmegen and a member of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration. In his talk, he will discuss the properties of popular black hole mimickers such as boson stars and wormholes and how their existence could indicate new physics and shed light on the nature of dark matter.
