Christopher Pope

Faculty: Distinguished Professor


Dr. Pope's research interests include:theoretical high-energy particle physics; unification of the fundamental interactions in nature; general relativity, quantum gravity, supergravity; superstring theories; conformal field theory; extended higher-spin theories; applications of differential geometry and topology in physics.Christopher Pope received his BA degree at the University of Cambridge in 1975, MA in 1979, and his PhD at the University of Cambridge in 1980. He was a Research Fellow at St. John's College, Cambridge from 1979 to 1982. After postdoctoral positions at Imperial College London he moved to USC in 1987, and then to Texas A&M in 1988.
