Robert Geroch (born 1 June 1942 in Akron, Ohio)[1] is an American theoretical physicist and professor at the University of Chicago. He has worked prominently on general relativity and mathematical physics and has promoted the use of category theory in mathematics and physics. He was the Ph.D. supervisor for Abhay Ashtekar and Gary Horowitz. He also proved an important theorem in spin geometry.[2][3]

Education

Geroch obtained his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University in 1967 under the supervision of John Archibald Wheeler.
