I call myself a String Theorist, someone who describes the world in terms of subatomic lengths of string that move in ten dimensions (nine of space and one of time),
But in practice I’m more of a Particle Theorist, describing the world not in terms of short lengths of string but rather with particles that each occupy a single point in space,
More specifically, I’m an Amplitudeologist, part of a trendy new tribe trying to make particle physics predictions a breeze, a tribe which sometimes includes Sheldon Cooper,
In terms of my career, I’m an Assistant Professor, though still on a short-term contract, still seeking fame, fortune, and a place I can actually live for longer than five years,
This is a blog about my work, my thoughts, and anything I think is interesting enough to post. I’ll try to aim things to a general audience: the hope is that someday the things I’m talking about will be as well known as electrons and protons! So please, drop by and hear about the trials and tribulations of four gravitons and a physicist.
