Hello! I have been on the Physics faculty at UMass-Dartmouth since Fall 2012. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher and Science Fellow at Columbia University. My interest in theoretical physics began early. Being a New York City kid, I was always awed by the stars (yes! I did manage to see them sometimes). What are they? Where did they come from? Will we ever be able to visit them? In time these questions led to deeper ones: How does the universe work? Where does *everything* come from? I learned that physics was best suited to answering the questions that sparked my imagination and have been pursuing it ever since.
