Professor of Physics


I am a theoretical physicist specializing in cosmology, particle physics and quantum gravity (String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity). I  received my BSc (1993) from Haverford College and PhD (2000) from Brown University. I held postdoctoral research fellowships at Imperial College, London and The Stanford University Linear Accelerator Center. I previously held faculty positions at Penn State, Haverford College and Dartmouth.

I also explore interconnections between music, physics,mathematics and technology though recordings, performance, teaching and public lectures.  I have performed and collaborated with Will Calhoun, Brian Eno, Marc Cary, Vernon Reid, Ronnie Burrage and Jaron Lanier on these intersections.
