Effective Field Theory allows one to separate the known particles and interactions at low energy from the unknown physics at high energy. When applied to General Relativity it allows reliable calculation of quantum effects in the infrared. I will describe the methods and results of the EFT treatment, with an emphasis on non-local/non-analytic effects. When pushed to higher energies, the formalism points towards the quantum resolution of some gravitational singularities.
