Update: After contributing to Physics Stack Exchange for almost three years, I stopped in June of 2021 when Stack Exchange sold itself to a subsidiary of Naspers.
I have a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from a leading university. After receiving my degree I was a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer for a few years, teaching graduate-level physics courses to doctoral candidates and publishing four papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Physical Review D. My modest research output has been cited more than 200 times by other researchers, but I made no breakthrough discoveries. During my time as a grad student and a postdoc, I was fortunate to work with three world-class experts in General Relativity and cosmology. I left physics after my postdoc for personal and financial reasons but continue to be interested in physics and mathematics.
I enjoy helping others learn about how physicists view the world, regardless of whether they intend to be physicists or are just curious about physics.
