Arthur F. Thurnau Professor

### About

Professor Elvang works on aspects of quantum field theory, supersymmetry, gravity, and particle physics. Her research interests reside at the interface between particle physics, general relativity, and string theory. Currently, she is working on new methods for calculating scattering processes and on problems related to understanding fundamental properties of quantum field theories.

Before joining Michigan in September 2009, Professor Elvang was a postdoctoral member at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (2008-09) and a Pappalardo Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2005-08). She received her Ph.D. from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2005.
