Farewell to outgoing theory postdoc Brooks Thomas

Friday, August 15, 2014

After a year with the Carleton theory group, our postdoc Brooks Thomas has left to take up a teaching position at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, USA.  Brooks has had a longstanding interest in teaching at a four-year undergraduate-focussed college like Reed since his undergraduate days when he studied at a similar institution in Minnesota.  Reed is arguably the best four-year undergraduate institution for physics in the United States; David Griffiths of Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, and Elementary Particles textbook fame is on the faculty there.

Congratulations Brooks!  We are still planning to finish our collaboration on dark matter!
