Hello! I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Physics at Loyola University Chicago. My research addresses problems in string theory, cosmology, general relativity, and quantum field theory.
I grew up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, went to college at UNC-Chapel Hill, and did my graduate work at UT-Austin. After finishing my PhD I held post-doctoral positions at the Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics, Brown University, and the Perimeter Institute. You can see a copy of my CV here, and my Google Scholar profile here. Sometimes I talk about physics on Twitter, where I'm @mcnees.
