Sean Carroll is a Senior Research Associate in Physics at the California Institute of Technology. His research involves theoretical physics and astrophysics, focusing on issues in cosmology, field theory, and gravitation. His current research involves models of dark matter and dark energy, cosmological modifications of Einstein's general relativity, the physics of inflationary cosmology, and the origin of time asymmetry. He has received research grants from NASA, the Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation, as well as fellowships from the Sloan and Packard foundations.
Theoretical physicist Sean Carroll has recently worked on the foundations of quantum mechanics, the arrow of time, and the emergence of complexity. He shared the latest on physics research, and also probed some of our deepest personal questions.
