Hello guys! I hope that you could help me. I want to do my PhD on LQG at the UK and I have the following options: Newcastle, with David Toms. (His research area is QFT on curved spacetime but he liked my project on LQG) Aberdeen, with Charles Wang Nottingham, with Kirill Krasnov or John Barret (not decided yet) Also, I have the following options, not exactly related on LQG: Sheffield, with Elizabeth Winstanley (on Quantum Gravity and Black Holes) Queen Mary, with Juan Valiente Kroon (on Mathematical Relativity) I wish to choose the better option based not only in prestige and productivity of supervisor / group, but also taking into account the university and the quality of life in their respective cities. Any information is welcome. Thanks for the help!
