Title: 
Effects of dynamic flavor in holographic quark-gluon plasmas
Abstract: 

I will discuss the string dual to finite temperature $ SU(N_c) $ N=4 SYM coupled to $ N_f $ massless flavors. The solution is perturbative in two parameters $ \epsilon\sim \lambda \frac{N_f}{N_c} $ and $ \delta \sim  \frac{n_B}{\lambda^{1/2} N_f T^3} $, which weigh the backreaction of the flavor fields and the presence of baryon density, respectively. I will use this solution to study the effects of charged dynamical quarks in the thermodynamics, energy loss and transport coefficients of the plasma.
