Research interest: Theoretical physicist studying elementary particles and fields
Dr. Todd Tinsley is a theoretical physicist 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 (~10-15 s).
