Rastelli is a professor at the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) at Stony Brook University. He received his Ph.D. from MIT in 2000. He was a Dicke Fellow (2000-2002) and an assistant professor (2002-2006) at Princeton University before joining the YITP in 2006. Rastelli is the recipient of an Outstanding Junior Investigator award, a Simons Fellowship and a Guggenheim Fellowship and has been a Blavatnik national finalist. Rastelli’s research interests have ranged from structural aspects of string theory to purely field-theoretic questions. Rastelli’s current main focus is the study of superconformal field theories in various dimensions by combining mathematical physics and numerical experimentation
