Theo Nieuwenhuizen concluded his master's exam cum laude in 1979, under the supervision of Professor Gerard 't Hooft, Nobel Prize Laureate and a member of the IIP's International Advisory Council. During the time studying for his PhD degree in Mathematics and Physics, he developed the thesis "Analytic methods and exact solutions for one-dimensional random systems". Nieuwenhuizen's work covers a wide variety of topics in theoretical physics, including a recently published solution to the quantum measurement problem.
He has previously worked in Brazil to organise a summer school in João Pessoa in 2012. Nieuwenhuizen now plans to visit Natal in September 2014 to start organising a school on "Quantum Foundations", to be held at the IIP in 2016.
