David Marsh

PDRA, Stipendiary Lecturer in Physcis

I am interested in the underlying fundamental structure of the universe and the extent to which this structure may be manifest in experiments and observations. My research is in theoretical high-energy physics; including string theory, cosmology, and particle physics.

During the academic year 2013-2014, I tutor first year physics students in mechanics, electromagnetism, and special relativity at St John's College. I also give tutorials for second year physics students in electromagnetism and optics.
