Daniel Sudarsky earned the B.S. degree in physics and mathematics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, in 1981. In 1982, he moved to Purdue University, USA, and worked on his Ph.D. degree under Ephraim Fischbach on the Fifth Force. His work centred on the possible use of the neutral Kaon system in the search for new interactions. He then moved to University of Chicago, where as a Visiting Scientist under Robert Wald, he jumped into the wonderful world of general relativity and did some interesting work on the newly discovered colored black holes and closed an outstanding gap in the classical black hole uniqueness theorems. In collaboration with G. Matsas and A. Higushi, he found that ordinary QED Bremsstrahlung can be viewed in the rest frame of the accelerated charges as the interaction of those with Rindler photons. After a brief adventure in Dominican Republic, he moved to Mexico, where he joined the Institute of Nuclear Sciences of UNAM. Since then, his interests have slowly moved from classical aspects of gravitation and cosmology to the interface of gravitation and quantum theory, a subject he approaches while remaining sceptical about the most popular approaches towards a quantization of gravity itself. He has been interested in the possibility of quantum gravity phenomenology, with and without violation of Lorentz Invariance (LI).
