Fay R. and Eugene L. Langberg Professor of Physics
Mark Trodden is Co-Director of the Center for Particle Cosmology. He works at the interface of cosmology and particle physics theory in constructing and investigating models that may shed light on the fundamental physics origins of dark matter, dark energy, the early cosmos, and other physics beyond the Standard Model. Trodden received his bachelor’s degree and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics from Cambridge University and his doctorate from Brown University. He is an editor of Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, Physics Letters B, and New Journal of Physics.
Prior to joining Penn, Trodden held the Alumni Professorship of Physics at Syracuse University. He has also held visiting positions at Cornell University, the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, and was a Sir Thomas Lyle Fellow at the University of Melbourne. He is currently a Kavli Frontiers Fellow, was a Cottrell Scholar of Research Corporation, and has chaired the National Academy of Sciences Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium.
