Elliott Tammaro, Ph.D

Assistant Professor of Physics

Elliott Tammaro joined Chestnut Hill College in May 2014. He graduated from Bryn Mawr College, where he received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics. His doctoral work examined the dimensional reduction of higher-dimensional supergravity and warped compactifications within string theory. His current research interests include foundational questions in quantum mechanics and their connection to physics beyond the standard model as well as quantum gravity and functional methods. He primarily teaches introductory mechanics and electromagnetism, but for the last five years has enjoyed teaching in the Interdisciplinary Honors Program (IDHP) at Chestnut Hill College alongside Sister Mary Helen Kashuba, SSJ.
