Xavier Calmet is a faculty member of the Theoretical Particle Physics Group at the University of Sussex. His current research interests span the interplay between particle physics and gravitational physics, grand unification, quantum gravity, physics of small black holes, the dark side of the universe (dark matter, dark energy) and information theory. He leads the working group on Quantum Black Holes that is part of the COST action: "Black Holes in a Violent Universe". Calmet is a founding editor of the Springer Briefs in Physics and a member of the editorial board of Foundations of Physics.
