# Ilia Teimouri BCG Henderson Postdoctoral Fellow

Combinatorial innovation, string theory, modified gravity, finance and machine learning.

Dr Ilia Teimouri is a physics postdoc at the London Institute. He did his PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Lancaster on modified theories of gravity and string theory. In particular, Dr Teimouri studied a sub-class of non-local gravity known as infinite derivative gravity, which weakens gravity at short distances and addresses cosmological and black hole singularities. He has also worked on sentiment market models in finance and is currently studying the mathematical structure of innovation and dynamics on Galton-Watson trees.
