Abstract

We know how to make perturbative calculations in quantum gravity using the framework of effective field theory. I will describe the basics of the effective field theory treatment and look at several calculations. There are obstacles to describing these with running coupling constants. Finally, I will do my best to try to connect these with the Asymptotic Safety program.
