Professor Elvang works on aspects of gravity, quantum field theory, supersymmetry, and particle physics. Her research interests reside at the interface between particle physics, general relativity, and string theory.
By using and combining the experiences and tools obtained from each of these fields, the goal is to be able to address challenging problems such as understanding the nature of quantum gravity and how to connect string theory to particle phenomenology.
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.
