Eva Silverstein is a Professor of Physics at Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Dr. Silverstein's major contributions include predictive new mechanisms for inflationary cosmology, which helped motivate a more systematic understanding of the process and the role of UV-sensitive quantities in observational cosmology; mechanisms for singularity resolution in string theory; a novel duality in string theory between extra dimensions and negative curvature; extensions of the AdS/CFT correspondence to more realistic field theories (with applications to particle physics and condensed matter model building) and to landscape theories; and simple mechanisms for stabilizing the extra dimensions of string theory. She is a former MacArthur Fellow and past recipient of a Sloan Research Fellowship.
