Joseph Smidt


    I am a student majoring in physics and mathematics at Brigham Young University.  My research interests are in Cosmology, Particle Physics and Theoretical Astrophysics. 

     Specifically, I have become increasingly interested in applying basic extensions of the Standard Model to accelerator physics, dark matter, early universe physics and theoretical cosmology in general. I am also interested in studying string phenomenology in these areas.

    I will attend The University of California, Irvine beginning in the Fall 2007.  I will be on the path to obtaining a PhD in Physics.
