Physics professor and spiritual child of ProfessorTownsend
. Teaches SpecRel?
every year (pretty much, at least). His research is in theoretical particle physics. Ask him about WIMPS, or negative mass. He loves that. A really nice guy, but has been known to deliver some pretty scathing commentary (with love, of course). If you tell him about bad ideas he will pretend not to hear (we don't want to cost him tenure!).
If he's lecturing and you're sitting in the front row be careful not to exhale too hard or else he'll fall over.
Nice guy, loved by frosh around the world.
