Jonathan L. Rosner


I am a Professor of Physics in the Physics Department, the Enrico Fermi Institute, and the College of the University of Chicago and a member of the particle theory group. My research focuses on particle physics. For further information see my CV, or a research blurb. You can also check out my papers since 1991 from www.arXiv.org, a subset of my papers (some early ones are not included) from Spires, or a complete publication list. As of July 15, 2011, I became Emeritus. In 2013 I served as Chair of the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society. Much of my time that year was devoted to a long-range planning exercise for the US high energy physics program: "Snowmass on the Mississippi".
