- Fellowship in 2017 at Columbia University
Sam received his PhD in theoretical physics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he worked with Prof. Henry Tye, who is a pioneering string cosmologist. He will continue his road to unveil the mystery of the universe at Columbia University as postdoctoral researcher.
Sam is interested in cosmology and particle theory. He conducts research in revealing the early cosmological history to infer the origin and fundamental nature of our universe. In particular, inflationary models and quantum nature of the early universe. He also studies baryon/lepton number violation of the standard model to understand the origin of matter anti-matter asymmetry. Sam appreciates a lot the beauty of bridging between the tiniest elements (fundamental particles) and the largest scale (whole observable universe) in a logical way.
