Originally from New Jersey and a graduate of Princeton University, I am an established scientist with a vast knowledge of theoretical and experimental physics. I am currently a Senior Experimental Physicist at Caltech, mainly working with high-powered lasers. I received a dissertation of the year award for my doctoral paper on Experimental Particle Physics and have been published in several peer-reviewed journals. I was also awarded The Newcomb Cleveland Prize of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). My scientific research has varied from Bose-Einstein condensates and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics to soft cosmic rays at sea level, cosmic radiation, and dark matter.
My interests outside of work include, the cello, Klingon Boggle, comic books, video games, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Superman (among other super heroes), and other Science Fiction related media and content.
The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is a private university in Pasadena, CA that has six academic divisions with strong emphasis on science and engineering, managing $332 million in 2011 in sponsored research.
As a Senior Experimental Physicist my main responsibilities include:
Dissertation of the Year Award
The Newcomb Cleveland Prize
Multiple Scientific Publications
Stephen Hawking's North Sea Project
Keynote Speaker at an Institute of Experimental Physics Conference
Logic & Reason
General Scientific Knowledge
