Niayesh Afshordi

Associate Professor

Dr. Afshordi dabbles in Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Physics of gravity and is obsessed with observational hints that could help address problems in fundamental physics.

Avery Broderick

Avery Broderick

Associate Professor

Dr. Broderick works to explain the fundamental physics of black holes and their observable characteristics. Black holes are sites where strong gravity dominates everything, from the dynamics of orbiting material to the shape of spacetime itself.

My research has so far included tackling different aspects of theoretical cosmology such as investigating inflationary and bouncing scenarios, models of dark energy, modifications of general relativity, backreaction of metric perturbations, cosmic strings in extra dimensions and initial conditions for quantum fluctuations.

Associate Professor

RQI stands for Relativistic Quantum Information – the broad title given to my field of research. I study traditional aspects of quantum information science in the more fundamental setting of relativistic field theory on flat and curved spacetimes.
