Assistant Professor of Physics
PhD in Physics from University of Iowa, 2014.
Studied String Theory and Gauge/Gravity Duality (Holographic AdS/CFT Correspondence)
MS in Physics from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, 2006
Studied experimental nano-science including electrical conductivity of metal oxide nano wires in the presence of non-inert ambient gaseous backgrounds, and graduate level mathematics.
My current research interests are in string/M-theory, and the gauge/gravity correspondence. In particular, I am interested in studying compactifications of higher dimensional geometry, and the breaking of supersymmetry. I am also interested in understanding the theoretical origins, generalizations, and limitations of the holographic gauge/gravity (AdS/CFT) correspondence, and many other topics in the forefront of theoretical physics.
