The Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi: http://www.fqxi.org/) was established in 2005 to catalyze, support and disseminate research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality. The institute is led by Max Tegmark, an Associate Professor at MIT.
Prof. Khanna was invited to join FQXi based on his research work relevant to Loop Quantum Cosmology--a study of cosmological and black hole models in the context of Loop Quantum Gravity wherein space-time is considered discrete at a very fundamental level. Accompanying this membership is a $15K research grant and the opportunity for future funding, exclusive to FQXi members.
