About the Author


I am a professor in the Princeton University Physics Department.  My department homepage is here, and I also have a web site for my research group, which is part of the high-energy theory group.

I was born in Tulsa (and so were my father and his father), but I grew up mostly in Aspen. Perhaps not by coincidence, two of my favorite pastimes, music and mountains, are available in spades in Aspen.  There's good theoretical physics too in Aspen in the summertime.

I am married and have three daughters.

Here are two pictures of me: one with my third daughter at home (photo by my wife), and one with Hamik Mukelyan, at the end of the Arete des Cosmiques route in Chamonix (photo by Ben Jones).
