Shai Chester


I'm originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, but I've been living in or near New York City ever since I moved there for high school. I went to Columbia for college, where I studied Math, Physics, and Philosophy (officially) and English Literature (unofficially). I am currently a fifth year PhD student in the Physics department, where I study theoretical high energy physics, in particular quantum gravity, the holographic principle, and phase transitions. Outside of physics, I am passionate about reading, film, lollygaggage, restaurants, music, hiking, and theater.
