Dr. Tinsley is a theorist working in the area of elementary particles and fields. He studies how the most fundamental constituents of matter behave in the presence of intense electromagnetic fields. The strength of these fields can only be found in the most exotic astrophysical phenomena (e.g. supernovae, magnetars) and in laboratories for the briefest of moments (~10-15s).For the last five years Dr. Tinsley has also served as the faculty advisor to the Hendrix College chapter of the Society of Physics Students.
