Flip Tanedo spends a lot of 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 currently faculty at UC Riverside where he is known for being covered in chalk dust after a long day’s work.
Flip Tanedo is an assistant professor of theoretical physics at the University of California, Riverside. His goal is to figure out what dark matter is and how it fits into understanding of fundamental science.

Prospective graduate students should review these lectures.
I am currently not taking new PhD students, but welcome inquiries about joining the UCR Particle Theory Group. We are committed to inclusion and I especially encourage women and under-represented minorities to consider our group.
