News from Quantum Gravity Phenomenology

Sabine Hossenfelder

NORDITA

Abstract
The phenomenology of quantum gravity is a young
and lively research field that brings together many areas of
physics, both experimental and theoretical. Its purpose is
to bridge the gap between current approaches towards a
fundamental theory of quantum gravity and observation, with
the hope of obtaining experimental guidance for our quest to
find the right theory. In this talk I will give a brief overview on
the present efforts to construct phenomenological models for
quantum gravity, and to test them in high energy particle physics,
astrophysics, cosmology, and high precision measurements.
