Flip Tanedo spends his 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 faculty at UC Riverside where he is known for being covered in chalk dust after a long day’s work.

I am a theoretical physicist specializing in particle physics. My main focus has been the search for an fundamental theory of dark matter: what is it, how did it get here, and how can experiments tell us about its dynamics?
Two aspects of this program are
The puzzles and tools in particle physics spill beyond historical disciplines. These include exciting overlaps with rapidly growing fields like multimessenger astronomy, particle-cosmology, machine learning, and information.
