Joseph Conlon

I am Professor of Theoretical Physics and Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Oxford. I work mostly on phenomenological applications of string theory to particle physics and cosmology.

I am the author of Why String Theory? , a popular book explaining the who, what and why of string theory to a general audience. The book is available from the publisher here .

I have been at Oxford physics since October 2008 and am a tutorial fellow in physics at New College. Prior to that I was a non-stipendiary junior research fellow of Balliol College .

Lectures notes for S7 Classical Mechanics (now with complete text and diagrams) are available here .

My CV is here .

Here is a link to the website Why String Theory?, made during the summer of 2012 together with Edward Hughes and Charlotte Mason.

My research is funded by the Royal Society through a University Research Fellowship and the European Research Council through a Starting Grant.
