Theoretical physics. String theory, dualities, supersymmetry breaking, and early universe cosmology. Recent work.
Michael Peskin
Theoretical high-energy physics; models of symmetry-breaking in the electroweak gauge theory and methods for their experimental tests, especially at present and future e+e- colliders; superstring theory and other approaches to the origin of the fermion mass spectrum. Recent work.
Thomas Rizzo
Theoretical particle physics; phenomenology of new physics models and experimental tests at colliders. Recent work.
Eva Silverstein
Theoretical high energy physics: duality symmetries and nonperturbative phenomena in string theory, applications to the unification of string vacua and to supersymmetry breaking; light-cone formulations and applications of nontrivial renormalization-group fixed points; issues in the ''matrix model'' proposal for formulating the theory (known as ''M theory'') underlying string theory. Recent work.
