Graduate students

Robert Caldwell is a theoretical physicist specializing in cosmology. His research addresses the basic properties of the universe as a whole: What is its history and future? What is its composition? What are the fundamental laws that determine its behavior? He has written over fifty refereed scientific articles on topics such as dark energy, dark matter, the cosmic microwave background, gravitational waves, and the fate of the universe.

His research is supported in part by the National Science Foundation. He has consulted for NASA and the Department of Energy, and also serves as a referee to various scientific journals. A portion of his scientific efforts is devoted towards improving science literacy and the public appreciation of science. He has written scientific articles for the general public, and frequently gives public lectures on cosmology.

He received a PhD in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1992, and has held research appointments at Fermilab, Cambridge University, University of Pennsylvania, and Princeton University. He has been on the faculty of Dartmouth College since 2000 as an assistant professor, and as an associate professor since 2005.
