Moving to the Institute for Advanced Study

In case you are wondering why I haven't been posting very much recently.... My postdoc at UC Santa Barbara ends this month, and on Sept 1st I will be starting an exciting new postdoc at the Insititute for Advanced Study near Princeton, as announced earlier.  I'm looking forward to some great conversations with people at the IAS and at Princeton.

So I've been rather tied up with finishing projects and packing books, not to mention two physics workshops I went to at McGill and at U British Columbia.  If there's ever a time when one is tempted to forswear possessions all together, it's when one is trying to clear out an apartment for a move.  Maybe we forget sometimes how practical the advice of Jesus is, to store up our treasures in Heaven rather than on Earth.

Really, it's kind of surprising I posted even once this month.  Hopefully things will be more peaceful once I arrive at Princeton, at least before all my stuff catches up with me!

About Aron Wall

In 2019, I will be studying quantum gravity and black hole thermodynamics as a Lecturer at the University of Cambridge. Before that, I read Great Books at St. John's College (Santa Fe), got my physics Ph.D. from U Maryland, and did my postdocs at UC Santa Barbara, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and Stanford. The views expressed on this blog are my own, and should not be attributed to any of these fine institutions.
