Brian Skinner (Ph.D. Physics, Advisor: B. Shklovskii)


My advisor was Professor Boris Shklovskii. After graduation I worked as a postdoc at Argonne National Laboratory.

I'm married, living in the suburbs of Chicago. I am a postdoc in condensed matter theory. I'll be interviewing for faculty jobs in the fall. I have great memories of sitting on the front steps of the building during the summer, eating lunch with classmates. The Physics department also hosted some great workshops and speakers. I liked 5001 Quantum Mechanics Professor Yong Qian and 8711 Solid State with Professor Alex Kamenev.
