Current Research Interests

The Standard Model of Elementary Particles is the best current theory for understanding the structure and interactions of matter. The Theory of Almost Everything, recently published by Pi Press, is a my non-technical explanation of this theory for those who want to understand the rules by which the universe runs but don't want to go to graduate school in physics.
