I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics at Hampshire College. My research focuses on the foundations of general relativity. I am particularly interested in the foundational questions on the physical interpretation of its mathematical formulation, which is necessary for understanding how the theory can be modified, whether as a classical or a quantum theory. While strictly speaking I do physics, my work is influenced by philosophy and history of general relativity. More details can be found in my CV. In this Story Collider podcast I share why general relativity is important to me.
I have extensive teaching experience at the college level and have designed a number of math and physics courses for both physics majors and non-science students.
