About the Speaker

Kaplan received his bachelor’s degree in physics and mathematics from Stanford, University his Ph.D. in physics at Harvard University, and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at SLAC and Stanford. Since 2012, he has been a professor of physics at Johns Hopkins University. His research has spanned a range of fields, including cosmology, particle physics, dark matter, scattering theory, and, most recently, the AdS/CFT correspondence and quantum gravity. His work has been supported by a Sloan Foundation Fellowship, an NSF CAREER grant, and by the Simons Foundation as a principal investigator of the Collaboration on the Nonperturbative Bootstrap.
