Savdeep S. Sethi

  Welcome to my webpage. I am a professor of physics in the Enrico Fermi Institute and the Kadanoff Center for Theoretical Physics
  at the University of Chicago. This is me.

  My area of research is superstr
ing theory, and you can usually find me in the particle theory group


  My papers can be found on the e-print archive or from inSPIRE. My curriculum vitae can be found here.


  Great Lakes Strings 2011 to be held in Chicago April 29 - May 1.
  Great Lakes Strings 2018 to be held in Chicago April 13-15. This is also the first string workshop in our new building!
  CUWiP Chicago 2020 to be held in Chicago January 17-19.



  Personal Stuff 

  This was the summer I didn't want to travel much but I still had to attend Strings 2006 in Beijing. A record
  of this trip can be found here.

  After Strings came Aspen, 2006 and then my first trip to Copenhagen to participate in the
  Niels Bohr Summer Institute.

  No real pictures from Strings 2005 in Toronto. Here is me soaked at Niagara Falls on one of the hottest
  days I've ever experienced.
  Pictures from Aspen, 2004 where we celebrated the discovery of anomaly cancellation by Green
  and Schwarz.

  Some memories from Strings 2004 in Paris are recorded here

  Pictures from Aspen, 2003, while my first visit to Japan for Strings 2003 is documented here.

  Some pics of our dog, Rebel.

  Some of my friends from Princeton visited Chicago around the 4th of July 2002. We had fun exploring 
  the city.  Check out some pics here.

  A visit to the Aspen Center for Physics provides a nice opportunity to do some physics (and some hiking).   
  Here are some pictures from a 2002 hike up Mount Massive. Some older pics from 2001 can be found here.

   My attempt to explain string theory to the public on npr (I shudder when I listen to this).

   More to come...
