KUSF 04.11.09 10-11 PM Static Limit Guest Professor Eva Silverstein DJ David Reffkin

Eva Silverstein (b. 1970) is a string theorist. She is married to fellow string theorist Shamit Kachru. She and Kachru were both proteges of Edward Witten.
She is best known for her work on tachyon condensation in string theory and resulting resolution of some spacetime singularities (with Adams, Polchinski, and others). Her other significant research contributions include the construction of the first models of dark energy in string theory, some basic extensions of the AdS/CFT correspondence to more realistic field theories (with Kachru), and the discovery of a predictive new mechanism for cosmic inflation involving D-brane dynamics (with Tong and Alishahiha).
"I first became interested when I learned what physics was some time in high school. I had a very interesting high school physics teacher. I had always enjoyed math and physical science and when I saw the power of physics to explain and predict physical phenomena through simple principles and calculations, I became hooked. I was especially fascinated by special relativity, which starts from a simple physical principle that the speed of light, and in general all laws of nature, are the same in all reference frames, and derives through simple high school algebra amazing consequences such as the fact that time slows down in moving frames. When I realized that one could produce such things full time and actually make a living at it, I never really looked back."
