In this talk, I will discuss the Jackiw-Teitelboim model in 2d dilaton gravity in a holographic context. After deriving the boundary time reparametrization equation and the holographic stress tensor, I will demonstrate that these can be obtained from an effective boundary model. Within that description, the commutator of matter fields at large time separation agrees with a gravitational shock wave interaction. One-loop quantum effects in the bulk, when combined with the above results, allow for a model describing an evaporating black hole in AdS2. Based on arXiv:1606.03438.
