Flip Tanedo spends his time thinking about dark matter.
He grew up in Los Angeles and fell in love with physics after reading The Physics of Star Trek. This carried into degrees in mathematics and physics at Stanford, Cambridge, Durham, and a Ph.D at Cornell. After a postdoc at UC Irvine, he is faculty at UC Riverside where he is known for being covered in chalk dust after a long day’s work.
Flip is the first Filipino-American professor of particle physics. He runs a Physical Science book club (“Phy-Sci”) at his local independent book store. He enjoys swimming, basketball, and speculative fiction.
Flip Tanedo is an assistant professor of theoretical physics at the University of California, Riverside. His research seeks to discover how dark matter fits into our fundamental understanding of nature.

I am not currently taking Ph.D students. UCR undergraduates seeking mentoring in particle physics (e.g. through NMC or CL) may contact me to discuss the possibility. I work closely with the UCR particle theory group.
Prospective UCR students should know that I am unlikely to take any student in the near future unless I have discussed this possibility ahead of time.
