Jed Thompson is a PhD student in Physics at Stanford University. His main research interests are in fundamental physics, with topics ranging from dark matter to more formal aspects of field theory. Many of the most pressing problems in fundamental physics are now being probed with astrophysical and cosmological data, and so he frequently works to bridge that divide, connecting models with new experiments that can test them. Outside of the office, he spends most of his time reading, going to the theater, and flying planes.
