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 research seeks to discover how dark matter fits into our fundamental understanding of nature.
