Matt is a second year Physics PhD student from upstate New York. He previously studied physics and math as an undergraduate at MIT. Matt thinks black holes are awesome and wants to learn more about what they look like inside and what happens when you throw things into them. His main research interests lie at the intersection of quantum gravity and quantum information theory, understanding connections between spacetime and quantum entanglement. When he isn't experimenting with fun math, coding simulations, or pondering the universe, Matt enjoys playing various sports, games, and music.

Kieran is a Penn PhD student in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science. He studies geomorphology and is broadly interested in how fluid forces interact with granular media to create various landforms such as river channels and sand dune fields. Kieran’s current research is centered around understanding the physical mechanisms that govern the shape and size of river channels. To pursue this interest, he combines experiments with field work. Kieran’s research helps us understand the physics of how the surface or the Earth and other planets are shaped. In his spare time, Kieran likes to unwind with some Muay Thai boxing.
