Senior Research Affiliate
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
John received his PhD from the University of Cambridge. His postdoctoral fellowships included positions at CERN and Imperial College London. John went on to a Senior Scientist position at the Research Institute for Advanced Studies in Maryland. He was Associate Professor of Physics at University of Toronto for three years then became a full professor.
The following topics of research are being pursued: 1) Investigations of the standard model of particle physics 2) Cosmology 3) Modified gravitational theory 4) Quantum gravity 5) Astrophysics and astronomy (analyzes of observational data). 6) Quantum mechanics
