Abstract

In this talk, I will discuss the asymptotic safety paradigm, and will highlight that it can provide a framework for a predictive ultraviolet completion for gravity and matter. Specifically, I will discuss compelling hints that exist for the realization of asymptotic safety in pure gravity, and will then present recent progress on the case of gravity coupled to Standard Model matter. In particular, I will highlight results that show how to forge a link between physics at the Planck scale and physics at the electroweak scale, in order to impose observational constraints on the microscopic quantum gravity dynamics.
