I'm a Full Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Penn.
I work on Theoretical Cosmology, play squash and love cricket.
I did my undergraduate studies at
just outside Philadelphia.
My PhD is from Cambridge University, England;
I was a Marshall Scholar
at the Institute of Astronomy.
After my PhD I spent time at
Max-Planck Institute fuer Astrophysik just outside Munich,
I then spent three years as an Assistant Professor at
Pitt before moving
to Penn. I was also a Research Scientist
at the Abdus Salam International Center
for Theoretical Physics .
Here is a list of my previous students, where they are now,
and their PhD projects:
-Ummi Abbas (2006, Marseille, Torino):
Environmental dependence of clustering in hierarchical models
-Lorenzo Rimoldini (2007, Edinburgh, Geneva):
Strong MgII absorbers in the SDSS
-Ramin Skibba (2006, Heidelberg, Arizona, UCSD):
Mark correlations in the SDSS
-Michelle Caler (2010, WCCC):
MgII systems and LFs at z=0.7 in the SDSS
-Matt Martino (2010, lecturer at Penn, -):
Halo formation and environment in alternative gravity models
-Jorge Moreno (2010, Haverford, SISSA, UVic):
Merger history trees in ellipsoidal collapse models
-Graziano Rossi (2009, KIAS, Seoul, Saclay):
Galaxy scaling relations from photometric redshift surveys
-Tsz Yan Lam (2009, IPMU, Tokyo, MPA):
Physics and statistics of nonlinear gravitational clustering
A more detailed listing of my academic travels and achievements is given
