STEPHON H. ALEXANDER is a professor of physics at Brown University where he focuses on theoretical cosmology, quantum gravity and particle physics. He did postodoctoral research at Imperial College, London and at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Laboratory.
Alexander's research primarily focuses on understanding the nature of dark energy in the universe, the origin of matter over anti-matter (baryogenesis) in the universe, the origin of large scale structure in the universe from fundamental theory, how space-time singularities, like the initial big-bang singularity are resolved, and how to test a theory of quantum gravity with observations in cosmology.
Alexander also plays jazz saxophone.
He is the author of The Jazz of Physics: The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the Universe.
