Ali H. Chamseddine is Professor at the American University of Beirut, holder of the Louis Michel Chair since 2009.
He is known for his contributions to particle physics, general relativity and mathematical physics. His general research area is theoretical and mathematical physics. The main theme is the unification of fundamental interactions and research for symmetries in nature. He has, in collaboration with the eminent mathematician Alain Connes, uncovered a hidden geometric structure of space-time which combines discrete and continuous geometry.
