Shamit Kachru, Ph.D.

Professor of Physics and Director, Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stanford University

Shamit Kachru’s work includes the discovery of string dualities in N=2 supersymmetry, foundational studies of flux compactification of string theory; mathematical studies of connections between automorphic forms, black holes and string vacua; and quantum field theories describing ‘non-fermi-liquid’ behavior in condensed matter physics.
