About me

Hello! My name is Sanjit Shashi. As of September 2023, I am a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California's Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics (SCIPP), working primarily with Edgar Shaghoulian.

I graduated from the University of Chicago in 2016 with a bachelor's in math. I then completed my PhD in physics in 2023 at the University of Texas at Austin, under Elena Cáceres.

I am primarily interested in both applications and the underlying nature of the holographic principle in quantum gravity. I also dabble in adjacent topics and questions in quantum field theory and many-body physics.
