Joining My Research Group

Prospective Postdocs

With its huge breadth of research interests and expertise, the Center for Theoretical Physics (CTP) at MIT is a great place to do postdoctoral research. There are also opportunities to engage with the Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI). Specific postdoctoral opportunities to collaborate with me and my group include:

Prospective Graduate Students

I anticipate at least one opening in my research group in the coming years. I am particularly interested in supervising students in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Statistics (IDPS), though I am open to working on all aspects of physics in and beyond the standard model.

  • For current MIT graduate students, please send me an email with your CV and previous research experience.
  • For prospective MIT graduate students, please apply to the MIT Physics PhD Program. If you are admitted, I would be delighted to talk to you about research opportunities in my group at the Physics Graduate Open House event typically held in early April.

Prospective Undergraduate Students

To do meaningful research in theoretical particle physics at the undergraduate level, you must have taken at least a course on Relativity (8.033) and a full year of Quantum Mechanics (8.05/8.06). I often work with students who have been exposed to some graduate-level courses at MIT, though there are also research projects available for students with extensive programming experience.

  • For current MIT undergraduate students, please send me an email with your CV and previous research experience. Funding is available through the MIT UROP program.
  • For students at other universities, there are potential opportunities to work with me through the MIT Summer Research Program.

Prospective High School Students

Currently, I am not conducting research with high school students. However, MIT offers a number of Summer Programs for high school students to gain research experience.
