A major problem of quantum field theory in curved spacetime, and quantum gravity more generally, is the lack of sufficient observational and experimental guidance. To address this issue I am proposing a multi- disciplinary approach to quantum gravity, using its possible connection to easy-to-access physical systems whose description is well-established — in theory and experiment — within other fields, such as quantum information, condensed matter physics, and hydrodynamics. This will allow me to address longstanding questions of semi-classical and full quantum gravity from a new perspective. In addition, I propose to engage the tools and concepts developed for the project’s objectives to further deepen the understanding of the non-gravitational systems evolved. In contrast to many other proposals, this programme’s objectives are both of theoretical and experimental nature, and range from a quantum information approach to quantum gravity to foundational studies on wave-current interactions.
