Meet Theory Girl Delilah

Dr. Delilah Gates studies high-spin black holes and gravity working to analytically characterize observational signatures of near extremal Kerr black hole using the emergent near-horizon conformal symmetry.


Delilah's interests include (near) extremal black hole geometries, black hole binaries, AdS/CFT correspondence, and black hole entropy. She never expected to live in the time where black holes transition from science fiction to science fact. So exciting!


Before joining Harvard, she earned two Bachelors of Science, one physics and one math, from the University of Maryland, College Park.


Delilah has a passion for support and community building within the physics community with a mindfulness towards equity for those who are members of underrepresented groups.
