Biography

BA Reed College; MA UC Berkeley; PhD Stanford University

Matthew Kleban is a theoretical physicist working on string theory and early-universe cosmology, with research interests that include the quantum physics of black holes and gravitational singularities. He came to NYU from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ. Recently he has focused on the possibility of testing theories of fundamental physics with observational cosmology, specifically the multiverse of string theory and the potentially observable traces left by cosmic bubble collisions in the cosmic microwave background radiation.
