This semester I am teaching part one of an introductory series aimed at life science students (Physics 135A) and a general science course on the nature of light (Physics 103).

Research interests

My primary research interests are in early universe cosmology and general relativity. My work has included looking for evidence of new particles in the cosmic microwave background, black hole physics and debunking a suggested extension of quantum mechanics.

A list of my publications can be found here (PDF).


My main outreach activities are: More detail on these activities is given on my outreach page.

Teachers looking for speakers to talk to their students about black holes, cosmology, development in particle physics or career in physics advice are encouraged to contact me.
