profile 11: thomas hertog



I know I typically cover chemists, since I'm a chemist, but this one is well, special. This is Thomas Hertog, a former student of Stephen Hawking. Yes, his advisor was /THE STEPHEN HAWKING/, and he's now a professor. He's a physicist, and a theoretical physicist at that. This deals with the incredibly complex, and mindboggling, at least from my mind. I can do mechanics and electrodynamics but this goes beyond anything I've ever known, so for that, just wow.

This guy is intellectually hot. From what I've read, he delves into m-theory and is going into how the universe began. He and Stephen Hawking wrote a paper in Physical Review (which letter, I dunno), that argues the universe "began in just about every way imaginable" at the same time. The paper is, beyond me, but it's really interesting.

Here's the link to a Nature 'dumbed' down version of the paper: http://www.nature.com/news/2006/060619/full/news060619-6.html

I dont know what he's up to now, but for all that he's done, he's definitely a HABANERO.
