Jonathan Tannenhauser
Lecturer in Mathematics

Background in theoretical particle physics, focusing on a conjectured equivalence between certain quantum field theories and certain string theories.


Professor Tannenhauser's background is in theoretical particle physics, where his work has focused on the the AdS/CFT correspondence, a conjectured equivalence between certain quantum field theories and certain string theories. More recently he has become interested in applying computational and statistical tools to the genomics of birdsong. The goal is to pinpoint which genes are expressed in a singing bird's brain and how the expression pattern changes over the course of brain development.
